• Frontogenesis of the Angola-Benguela Frontal Zone 

      Koseki, Shunya; Giordani, Herve; Goubanova, Katerina (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2019-02-08)
      A diagnostic analysis of the climatological annual mean and seasonal cycle of the Angola–Benguela Frontal Zone (ABFZ) is performed by applying an ocean frontogenetic function (OFGF) to the ocean mixing layer (OML). The ...
    • Influences of Lake Malawi on the spatial and diurnal variability on local precipitation 

      Koseki, Shunya; Mooney, Priscilla A. (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2019)
      We investigate how the intensity and spatial distribution of precipitation vary around Lake Malawi on a diurnal timescale, which can be valuable information for water resource management in tropical south-eastern African ...
    • Role of wind stress in driving SST biases in the tropical Atlantic 

      Voldoire, Aurore; Exarchou, Eleftheria; Sánchez-Gómez, Emilia; Demissie, Teferi Dejene; Deppenmeier, Anna-Lena; Frauen, Claudia; Goubanova, Katarina; Hazeleger, Wilco; Keenlyside, Noel; Koseki, Shunya; Prodhomme, Chloé; Shonk, Jonathan; Toniazzo, Thomas; Traoré, Abdoul-Khadre (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2019-03-13)
      Coupled climate models used for long-term future climate projections and seasonal or decadal predictions share a systematic and persistent warm sea surface temperature (SST) bias in the tropical Atlantic. This study attempts ...
    • Tropical Atlantic variability: Observations and modeling 

      Cabos, William; de la Vara, Alba; Koseki, Shunya (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2019-08-27)
      We review the state-of-the-art knowledge of Tropical Atlantic Variability (TAV). A well-developed observing system and sustained effort of the climate modeling community have improved our understanding of TAV. It is dominated ...
