The Limpopo Low-Level Jet: mean climatology and role in water vapor transport

Abstract:

Low-level jets (LLJs) are well established as critical features of regional climates globally. However, across sub-Saharan Africa, LLJs have received relatively little attention, in part due to a lack of data. Utilizing high-resolution reanalysis data, this paper develops the first climatology of a neglected feature of the southern African circulation – the Limpopo LLJ – and investigates its role in delivering water vapor to the continental interior. We demonstrate that the LLJ has a clear di...
