A process-based assessment of CMIP5 rainfall in the Congo Basin: the September-November rainy season

Abstract:

Congo Basin September-November rainfall varies by up to a factor of three across CMIP5 coupled models. The severe lack of observational data in this region makesmodel evaluation difficult using standard techniques. This study uses a process-based assessment to evaluate the plausibility of mechanisms related to coupled model rainfall in September-November. Models tend to simulate a rainfall maximum in either the west or east of the basin. In most months west Congo rainfall is positively correl...
