Kemena, Tronje Peer; Matthes, Katja; Martin, Thomas; Wahl, Sebastian; Oschlies, Andreas (2017): Atmospheric feedbacks in North Africa from an irrigated, afforested Sahara. In Clim Dyn 66, p.[nbsp]57. DOI: 10.1007/s00382-017-3890-8.

„Here, we investigate changes in precipitation and circulation in response to Saharan large-scale afforestation and irrigation with NCAR’s CESM-WACCM Earth system model. Our model results show a Saharan temperature reduction by 6 K and weak precipitation enhancement by 267 mm/year over the Sahara.“
