Climate change projected to increase seasonal East African rainfall

According to research led by The University of Texas at Austin, seasonal rainfall is expected to rise significantly in East Africa over the next few decades in response to increased greenhouse gases. The study, published in Climate Dynamics, used high-resolution simulations to find that the amount of precipitation during the rainy season known as the ‘short rains’ could double by the end of the century, continuing a trend that has been observed in recent years.
