Early career researchers boost skills in climate modelling

During a week-long course at the University of Leeds, UK, in December, seven early career researchers from prestigious institutions in West Africa have gathered to boost their skills in computer programming and analysis of climate model results. The goal is to give them access to a wider range of climate modelling platforms – and the ability to turn this into deepened understanding of the complex processes in West Africa’s climate system. The training workshop was organised and hosted by the Africa Monsoon Multidisciplinary Analysis 2050 (AMMA-2050) project.
