Long-term climate projections for Senegal.
Long-term climate projections as pixel grid, at a regional scale.
This climate service aims at providing intelligible climate projection data in Africa through maps and time charts. It features several parameters based on temperature, rainfall and agriculture yields, scaled on monthly periods.
Initial data is Coupled Model Intercomparison Project Phase 5 (CMIP5) global climate models. The version presented here has been bias-corrected for Africa using CDF-t method as part of the AMMA 2050 project, then re-scaled by month. Crop yield results have been obtained by SARRA-H Ocelet. All this data comes as raster data with resolution 0.5°x0.5°, which was cut and weighted to match country and administrative regions.
This work was supported by a grant from the French Ministry for an Ecological and Solidary Transition as part of the Convention on financial support for climate services.
