DACCIWA Newsletter Autumn/Winter 2017
Welcome to the 6th DACCIWA newsletter containing information on the DACCIWA publications, policy brief, collaborators and much more.
Since the last issue of the newsletter, we have made substantial progress in analysing the measurements form the main campaign in June-July 2016 in conjunction with modelling experiments and satellite data. Through this we now have a much clearer idea of pollution levels and their sources, we better understand the diurnal cycles of the boundary layer, low clouds and precipitation systems, and we have been able to clarify the impacts of aerosols on the West African meteorology.  All these exciting new fingings have recently been discussed at our annual science meeting in Karlsruhe.
We are also making preparation for our second DACCIWA-organised session on the atmospreric composition, weather and climate of Sub-Saharan Africa at the General Assembly of the European Geosciences Union in Vienna from 08-13 April 2018. Please consider submitting an abstract (deadline 10 January 2018)
Thank you for your continued interest in DACCIWA!
Peter Knippertz, project coordinator
