Abstract/Summary

In recent decades, West Africa has experienced some of the most extreme rainfall variability anywhere in the world. At present there is no consensus on how changes in greenhouse gases, land cover and aerosols will impact rainfall and flow regimes in the region. AMMA-2050 will investigate how the West African monsoon will change in future decades, and investigate the causes of High Impact Weather (HIW) and how they might change in the future. We will use this information to increase the understanding of future changes in floods, water resources and urban flooding.
