  2. 2. On Sahelian-Sudan rainfall and its moisture sources

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Department of Meteorology, Stockholm University

    Author : Abubakr A. M. Salih; Qiong Zhang; Michael Tjernström; Alessandra Giannini; [2015]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Sudan; Sahel; rainfall; land use; deforestation; moisture sources; moisture transport; Lagrangian; moisture tagging; regional model; climate modeling; Atmospheric Sciences and Oceanography; atmosfärvetenskap och oceanografi;

    Abstract : The African Sahel is one of the most vulnerable regions to climate variability at different time scales. It is an arid to semi-arid region with limited water resources. The summer rainfall is one of these sources, but it exhibits pronounced interannual variability. This thesis presents several aspects of Sahelian Sudan rainfall. READ MORE

  3. 3. Water Erosion Modelling using Fractal Rainfall Disaggregation, a Study in Semiarid Tunisia

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Department of Meteorology, Stockholm University

    Author : Sihem Jebari; [2009]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Soil erosion; semiarid; Tunisia; rainfall; fractal; diaggregation;

    Abstract : In the Tunisian semiarid area, water erosion processes have led to negative economic and environmental consequences in a context of limited water resources. To characterize and predict these degradation phenomena, a comprehensive high-resolution data base on erosive rainfall, together with siltation records for 28 small reservoirs were analyzed.

  4. 4. Properties of heavy rainfall in an East Asian monsoon catchment - Analysis of daily rain gauge data

    University dissertation from Department of Water Resources Engineering, Lund Institute of Technology, Lund University

    Author : Cecilia Svensson; [1998]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; China.; Huai River; East Asian monsoon; typhoon; Mei-Yu front; fractals; empirical orthogonal function analysis; correlation analysis; probable maximum precipitation; storm movement; seasonal occurrence; Rainfall; spatial pattern; Hydrogeology; geographical and geological engineering; Hydrogeologi; teknisk geologi; teknisk geografi; Geophysics; physical oceanography; meteorology; Geofysik; fysisk oceanografi; meteorologi;

    Abstract : The East Asian monsoon has a strong seasonal effect on the rainfall regime of Eastern China. In order to mitigate floods and conserve the water for use throughout the year, dams and other hydro-structures are built. The design of the structures requires knowledge of the rainfall characteristics that influence the inflow to them. READ MORE
