Trends in mean and extreme temperatures over Ibadan, Southwest Nigeria
In recent times, Ibadan has been experiencing an increase in mean temperature which appears to be linked to anthropogenic global warming.
Added value of a high-resolution regional climate model in simulation of intraseasonal variability of the South Asian summer monsoon
The South Asian summer monsoon (SASM) exhibits large variability in the intraseasonal scale, and active and break cycles of monsoon constitute dominant mode of this variability.
How well do CORDEX models simulate extreme rainfall events over the East Coast of South Africa?
This study assesses the capability of regional climate models (RCMs) in simulating the characteristics of widespread extreme rainfall events over the East Coast of South Africa.
Submesoscale cyclones in the Agulhas current
Gliders were deployed for the first time in the Agulhas Current region to investigate processes of interactions between western boundary currents and shelf waters.
Learning from single extreme events
Extreme climatic events (ECEs) have a disproportionate effect on ecosystems.
The development of a linked modelling framework for analysing the socioeconomic impacts of energy and climate policies in South Africa
This paper presents some methodological improvements made to the linked SATIM– eSAGE energy-economy-environment modelling framework for analysing energy and climate policy in South Africa.
Living with drought in South Africa: lessons learnt from the recent El Niño drought period
South Africa is prone to drought.
Climate change, sustainable water management and institutional adaptation in rural sub-Saharan Africa
Much current work on climate adaptation options vis-à-vis water management in rural sub-Saharan Africa has tended to focus more on technological and infrastructural alternatives and less on i
What role for local organisations in climate change adaptation? Insights from South Africa
With increasing funding directed towards climate change adaptation (CCA) in developing countries, there is a growing need to understand how this support is landing on the ground and impactin
Contributions of decadal climate information in agriculture and food systems in east and southern Africa
Whilst there has been much focus on the utility of climate information on the seasonal timescale and several decades into the future vis-à-vis decision-making and responses to climate and rel
Methodological and empirical considerations when assessing freshwater ecosystem service provision in a developing city context: Making the best of what we have
This study contributes to both the methodological and empirical literature by developing an integrative approach to assessing temporal and spatial change in riparian ecosystem service deliver
Potential impacts of forestation on heatwaves over West Africa in the future
Previous studies have projected future climate change impacts on heatwaves in West Africa, but without including the influence of ongoing forestation activities in the region.
