Atmospheric composition, weather and climate in Sub-Saharan Africa (co-organized)
|Convener: Céline Mari | Co-Conveners: Peter Hill , John Marsham , Véronique Yoboué|
This session is open to a wide range of contributions on atmospheric sciences in Sub-Saharan Africa, with a focus on tropical regions.
This includes work based on field observations (campaign, long-term), satellite remote sensing and numerical models as well as work targeting socio-economic implications of atmospheric phenomena.
Contributions are invited on various relevant topics, related to Sub-Saharan Africa, including:
* dynamical meteorology;
* atmospheric chemistry, aerosols and associated health impacts
* cloud microphysics and precipitation
* climate variability and change
* radiative processes
One focus of the session is the ongoing DACCIWA (Dynamics-Aerosol-Chemistry-Cloud Interactions over West Africa) project funded by the European Commission under FP7. DACCIWA organized a large international field campaign in June-July 2016 in southern West Africa.
Young scientist/student presentations are especially encouraged and we will reserve several oral units for such papers in this session.
