Representation of the Indian Ocean Walker Circulation in climate models and links to Kenyan rainfall

Abstract:

Reliable climate change projections over East Africa are vital because of regional vulnerability to precipitation changes. However, global climate models from Coupled Model Intercomparison Project Phase 5 (CMIP5) display significant biases in their representation of key East African rainfall seasons, which call into question the reliability of projected climate change. We investigate the links between models' representation of rainfall over Kenya during the long and short rains and the proxim...
