Dynamics-aerosol-chemistry-cloud interactions in West Africa (DACCIWA)

Start date: Dec 1, 2013, End date: Nov 30, 2018,

"Massive economic and population growth and urbanisation are expected to lead to a tripling of anthropogenic emissions in southern West Africa (SWA) between 2000 and 2030, the impacts of which on human health, ecosystems, food security and the regional climate are largely unknown. An assessment of these impacts is complicated by (a) a superposition with effects of global climate change, (b) the st ...
