Joint Seminar: The role of mid-latitude SST in the 21st century Sahel rainfall projections

Contents:

-Uncertainty of the projected Sahel rainfall in GCMs has not been improved in a new generation of GCMs (i.e. CMIP5).

-Different extratropical SST anomalies for the 21st-century projection seem to be a main driver for the discrepancy in the projected Sahel rainfall.

-SST-sensitivity experiments with ECHAM6 confirms the impact of different extratropical SSTs on Sahel rainfall.

-The involved mechanisms seem to be associated with increased moisture flux and intensified Tropical Easterly Jet (This part is very preliminary at the moment)
