Tropical cyclones represent an important component of intraseasonal atmospheric variability in the southwest Indian Ocean, and their landfall can be devastating to coastal communities. However, little is known about their impact on precipitation in the high‐elevation regions of East Africa. Here we combine in situ measurements from the summit of Kilimanjaro and subkilometer atmospheric modeling of the region to investigate the impact of these storms during the 2006–2007 cyclone season, which… 
A multiannual ground temperature dataset covering sixteen high elevation sites (3493–4377 m a.s.l.) in the Bale Mountains, Ethiopia
Abstract. Tropical mountains and highlands in Africa are under pressure because of anthropogenic climate and land-use change. To determine the impacts of global climate change on the afro-alpine
An hourly ground temperature dataset for 16 high-elevation sites (3493–4377 m a.s.l.) in the Bale Mountains, Ethiopia (2017–2020)
Abstract. Tropical mountains and highlands in Africa are under pressure because of anthropogenic climate and land-use change. To determine the impacts on the afro-alpine environment and to assess the
BAYWRF: a high-resolution present-day climatological atmospheric dataset for Bavaria
Abstract. Climate impact assessments require information about climate change at regional and ideally also local scales. In dendroecological studies, this information has traditionally been obtained
BAYWRF: a convection-resolving,present-day climatological atmospheric dataset for Bavaria
Abstract. Climate impact assessments require information about climate change at regional and ideally local scales. In dendroecological studies, this information has traditionally been obtained using
Using high-resolution regional climate models to estimate return levels of daily extreme precipitation over Bavaria
Abstract. Extreme daily rainfall is an important trigger for floods in Bavaria. The dimensioning of water management structures as well as building codes are based on observational rainfall return
Convection‐permitting modeling with regional climate models: Latest developments and next steps
Approximately 10 years ago, convection‐permitting regional climate models (CPRCMs) emerged as a promising computationally affordable tool to produce fine resolution (1–4 km) decadal‐long climate
General Circulation Model Selection Technique for Downscaling: Exemplary Application to East Africa
Downscaling is widely used in studies of local and/or regional climate as it yields a greater spatial resolution than general circulation models (GCMs) can provide. It utilizes GCM output or
