Spatial and temporal variability of rainfall in the Nile Basin
(Hydrology and Earth System Sciences, 2015)
Spatiotemporal variability in annual and seasonal rainfall totals were assessed at 37 locations of the Nile Basin in Africa using quantile perturbation method (QPM). To get insight into the spatial difference in rainfall ...
Geospatial Trends and Decadal Anomalies in Extreme Rainfall over Uganda, East Africa
(Onyutha, C. (2016). Geospatial trends and decadal anomalies in extreme rainfall over Uganda, East Africa. Advances in Meteorology, 2016. http://dx.doi.org/10.1155/2016/6935912, 2016)
Trends and variability in series comprising the mean of fifteen highest daily rainfall intensities in each year were analyzed considering entire Uganda.The data were extracted from high-resolution (0.5∘ × 0.5∘) gridded ...
Comparison of different statistical downscaling methods for climate change rainfall projections over the Lake Victoria basin considering CMIP3 and CMIP5
(Journal of Hydro-environment Research, 2016)
In this study, outputs of three statistical downscaling (SD) methods including the change factor (Delta), simplified (simQP) and advanced (wetQP) quantile-perturbation-based approaches were compared based on daily rainfall ...
Analyses of rainfall trends in the Nile River Basin
(Journal of hydro-environment research, 2016)
Trends in rainfall at 39 locations of the Nile River Basin (NRB) in Africa were analyzed. Comparison was made between rainfall trend results from the long-term data and those of short-term series selected over different ...
Household perception of climate change in wetland adjacent areas in Uganda
(Uganda Journal of Agricultural Sciences, 2016)
Climate change is a major cause of food insecurity in developing countries, like Uganda where the poor people and small scale farmers have limited options for adaptation. Households adjacent to wetlands often adapt to ...
