Climate models bias the rains down in Africa, but there’s something that 100 model runs or more could do 26 October 2015

Climate models bias the rains down in Africa, but there’s something that 100 model runs or more could do

If Toto had been a group of climate modelers instead of a band, the song “Africa” might have informed listeners that East Africa has two rainy seasons--long rains from March to May and short rains from October to December.

Projections of tropical cyclones and rainfall in the African Sahel could be improved with better understanding and representation of African easterly waves in models 16 September 2015

Projections of tropical cyclones and rainfall in the African Sahel could be improved with better understanding and representation of African easterly waves in models

Accurately simulating AEWs is critical to predicting Atlantic tropical cyclones and hurricanes, but new research supported by the Climate Variability and Predictability program, and accepted for publication in the Journal of Climate, demonstrates several shortcomings in CMIP5 models preventing accurate representation of AEWs.

Semi-arid regions may be key to understanding and predicting variations in the land CO2 sink 10 June 2015

Semi-arid regions may be key to understanding and predicting variations in the land CO2 sink

Terrestrial ecosystems pull about one-fourth of anthropogenic CO2 emissions out of the atmosphere per year, serving as a sink for CO2 since industrialization.
