Nature Communications study presents extreme precipitation projections over Lake Victoria
Lake Victoria in East Africa is known to be stormy at night, with thousands of fishermen dying each year. A new study investigates the controls on extreme thunderstorms over the lake and projects their future change.
Topography modifies summer precipitation response to climate change
Past studies of European climate change have projected a large-scale drying for the summer season. A recent ensemble of high-resolution regional climate models confirms these results for Europe, but also projects increases in mean Alpine precipitation. In addition, the tendency towards heavier thunderstorms is confirmed.
