Africa and updating forecasting techniques. Meteorology of Tropical West Africa: The Forecasters’ Handbook utilizes the new weather and climate research from AMMA and makes this applicable to forecasting. Through its sponsorship by the World Meteorological Organization, and its publication as a textbook in 2017, the methods and tools will be made available to the operational prediction community in West Africa; to early-career researchers; to summer school participants such as those with the Ewiem

(ECHAM versions A and F), the NOAA/Geophysical Fluid Dynamics Laboratory (GFDL) model, the NASA model, the National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR) model, and the ensemble mean of these models (ENSM). All model hindcasts cover the period 1981–2010. In an attempt to improve seasonal forecast skill, we employ CCA to downscale the U.S. NMME forecasts. The technique employed is described in Mo and Thiaw (2002) and consists of using U.S. NMME precipitation forecasts in a relatively large domain

A hydrological modeling framework suitable for multiscale flood forecasting is introduced and used to build capacity in the Republic of Namibia and around the world. Situated along Africa’s southwest coast, Namibia is a country renowned for its ancient deserts. The most arid country in sub-Saharan Africa, Namibia contains the majority of the Namib Desert, the oldest in the world, and a large portion of the dry Kalahari savannah and semidesert region ( Barnard et al. 1998 ). However, 15% of the
