Africa: Coupled regional modelling of land-atmosphere-ocean interactions over western-southern Africa under climate change
Contact person Francois Engelbrecht FEngelbrecht@csir.co.az
The climate system of western-southern Africa is highly coupled and exhibits intricate interactions between the land, atmosphere and ocean. The dominating biome is the African savannahs, where complex tree-grass interactions are shaped by fire and land-use.
It has been postulated that under future climate change rising CO2 levels and increasing temperatures may favor trees over grasses in the savannah, leading to bush encroachment at the expense of biodiversity and grazing potential. However, given that that much of southern Africa is likely to become drier and significantly warmer under climate change (a conclusion of the Africa Chapter of AR5) it is plausible that mega-fire events may occur more frequently in savannahs, effectively favoring grasses over trees.

This is a final reminder that the abstract submission deadline for the upcoming EGU General Assembly is very close, on 10 January
2018 at 13:00 Central Europe Time (12:00 UTC).
We encourage you to submit your research for presentation in the session “Regional climate modeling, including CORDEX” (session CL5.06 ), so that this session can continue to be a strong contribution to the EGU climate program. The session description (with a link to the abstract submission page) is at
We look forward to meeting you in Vienna.
