Abstract

By using COSMO-ART, highly resolved process study simulations for 2-3 July 2016 are conducted to assess the aerosol effect on the meteorological conditions of southern West Africa. The meteorological phenomenon Evening Monsoon Flow Enhancement (EMFE) is identified as highly susceptible to the aerosol direct effect, leading to a spatial shift of the EMFE front. In a second aerosol feedback chain the aerosol variation leads to a temporal shift of the stratus-to-cumulus transition.

Abstract

In this work, the influence of the interactions between the soil, the vegetation and the atmosphere on the variability of the West African Monsoon is investigated. Therefore climate simulations with the regional climate model COSMO-CLM, coupled to two different Soil-Vegetation-Atmosphere-Transfer Models, are performed. Based on the simulation results sensitive processes in the West African Monsoon system are identified and their impact on its decadal variability is evaluated.
