IMPALA 1st Science Meeting and Interim Progress Report 2016

The overarching aim of IMPALA (Improving Model Processes for African Climate) is to deliver a step change in global model climate prediction for Africa on the 5-40 year timescale by delivering reductions in model systematic errors, resulting in reduced uncertainty in predictions of African climate and enabling improved assessment of the robustness of multi-model projections for the continent. The project commenced in February 2015 and will make an annual report within the wider FCFA programme in June 2016. This report documents progress as reported at the first IMPALA science meeting 10-11 December 2015.
