The impact of rain events on CO2 emissions from contrasting land use systems in semi-arid West African savannas

In the future the Sudanian savanna – one of West Africa's high-potential “bread baskets” – will likely face shorter rainy seasons with more extreme rains and droughts. That could have serious impacts on the vegetation and its carbon dioxide (CO2) exchange with potentially increasing CO2 emissions accelerating climate warming. Understanding how t...

Performance Analysis and Projected Changes of Agroclimatological Indices Across West Africa Based on High-Resolution Regional Climate Model Simulations

In this study, we analyze a set of agroclimatological indices across West Africa and assess their projected changes for the future. We apply the regional climate model CCLM (COnsortium for Small-scale MOdelling in CLimate Mode) with a high spatial resolution of 0.11° (approximately 12 km) under current (1981–2010) and future climate conditions, ...

The Common Community Physics Package (CCPP) Framework v6

The Common Community Physics Package (CCPP) is a collection of atmospheric physical parameterizations for use in Earth system models and a framework that couples the physics to a host model’s dynamical core. A primary goal for this effort is to facilitate research and development of physical parameterizations and experimentation with physics-dyn...

A Case Study Investigating the Low Summertime CAPE Behavior in the Global Forecast System

Convective available potential energy (CAPE) is an important index for storm forecasting. Recent versions (v15.2 and v16) of the Global Forecast System (GFS) predict lower values of CAPE during summertime in the continental United States than analysis and observation. We conducted an evaluation of the GFS in simulating summertime CAPE using an e...
