Sensitivity of Twentieth-Century Sahel Rainfall to Sulfate Aerosol and CO2 Forcing

Previous studies have suggested that this drying trend may be explained by either decadal modes of natural variability or by human-driven emissions (primarily aerosols), but these studies lacked a sufficiently large number of models to attribute one cause over the other.
