Consensus Seasonal Flood Forecasts and Warning Response System (FFWRS): An Alternate for Nonstructural Flood Management in Bangladesh
The framework of an ideal warning response system for issuance of consensus seasonal flood forecasts in Bangladesh is revisited and a framework similar to that of the Southern African Regional Climate Outlook Forum (SARCOF) has been discussed. Expand
Prediction of African Rainfall and Household Food Security
More than a century has passed since some of the earliest scientific efforts at understanding the variability of tropical and subtropical rainfall (Blanford 1884), while Walker made extraordinaryExpand
Seasonal Forecasting for Climate Hazards: Prospects and Responses
One of the most promising developments for early warning of climate hazards is seasonal climate forecasting. Already forecasts are operational in many parts of the tropics and sub-tropics,Expand
Exploring the correlation between Southern Africa NDVI and Pacific sea surface temperatures: Results for the 1998 maize growing season
Several studies have identified statistically significant correlations between Pacific sea surface temperature anomalies and NDVI anomalies in Southern Africa. The potential predictive value of theExpand
The Application of Seasonal to Interannual Climate Forecasts Based on El Niño - Southern Oscillation (ENSO) Events: Australia, Brazil, Ethiopia, Peru, and Zimbabwe
In this paper we present case studies of the efforts of five nations, Australia, Brazil, Ethiopia, Peru, and Zimbabwe, to use climate forecasts based on the El Nino-Southern Oscillation (ENSO) systemExpand
El Niño and Drought Early Warning in Ethiopia
El Nino (EN) is the increase in the surface temperatures (SST) in the central and eastern equatorial Pacific Ocean. EN results from changes in the pattern and direction of winds and ocean currents inExpand
