Potential predictability of the Ethiopian summer rains: Understanding local variations and their implications for water management decisions

Authors: Meron Teferi Taye, Ellen Dyer, Katrina J. Charles, Linda C. Hirons 

Understanding the influence of large-scale oceanic and atmospheric variability on rainfall over Ethiopia has huge potential to improve seasonal forecasting and inform crucial water management decisions at local levels, where data is available at appropriate scales for decision makers. This study identifies spatial variability of relationships, and interactions, that offer additional information to support development of seasonal forecasting.
