MyCOE/SERVIR East Africa: outreach seminar (Linköping University)

Last December’s MyCOE/SERVIR fellowship workshop in Nairobi has already been the inspiration for new research work at Rhodes University that integrates geographical technologies with field-based research.

Kate and I are presenting a seminar at Linköping University’s TEMA-Vatten today (and at Northampton University next week) that looks at extreme weather events in the Sneeuberg Mountains of the Karoo in South Africa because these destructive floods are becoming increasingly severe. Our seminar examines the new rainfall information which we have collected and compares this with satellite-derived precipitation data accessed using the Giovanni data portal.
