The annual rainfall ranges from 1,000 to 2,200 … This study analyses spatiotemporal variability and trends in rainfall and temperature in Alwero watershed, western Ethiopia. portions of Ethiopia fall in this category: the whole Ogaden, the Afar triangle, the Danakil depression, the northern por-, tion of the Rift Valley, and the belt across the border with, controlled by the seasonal migration of the ITCZ and by the, complex topography of the country. Unlike temperature extremes, precipitation extreme trends showed high variability among nearby stations within eco-environments and were not significant at many of the stations studied. The study is based on gridded monthly rainfall and maximum and minimum temperature data series at a resolution of 4 × 4 km which were obtained from the National Meteorological Agency of Ethiopia for the period 1983–2016. Climate Ethiopia may On average, it is maximum 23° in may in Ethiopia and at least around 11° degrees. Rainfall anomaly patterns can be predicted with some skill within a short lead time of the summer season, based on emerging ENSO developments. In the tropical climate region with a dry season in winter, minimum temperature during the perturbed phase (July or. Based on weather reports collected during 2005–2015. Two hundred fifty three farmers from three administrative areas (districts) that are close to the meteorological stations were interviewed in order to investigate farmers' perception on rainfall trend and variability in the study area. After homogenization, the original raw climate data was compared with the homogenized data. %PDF-1.5 %���� Fault slip analysis along the WAM yields the same extension direction. Based on sodium adsorption ratio (SAR) and residual sodium carbonate (RSC) values, all groundwater schemes are in the excellent quality class and can be used for irrigation without any problem. By contrast, the annual thermal amplitude is, ). highlands and the lowlands close to the Sudan border receive, more than 7 h of mean daily sunshine, whereas from, to the southeast of the country the respective value increases, commonly recorded in Tigray and Ogaden. Instead, they rather focused on speci, with climate change and its implications becoming the most, investigated theme in the last decade. WMO/UNEP, Trends in daily observed temperature and precipitation extremes over three Ethiopian eco-environments, Predictability of June September Rainfall in Ethiopia, Studio geoarcheologico dell'area circostante Hadrianopolis. The result revealed intra- and inter-annual variability of rainfall while Palmer drought severity index value proved the increasing trend of the number of drought years. Temperature shows a markedly increasing trend especially as regards the minimum values. The data were derived from a survey of 413 households randomly selected from four Kebeles (the smallest government administrative units) in the CRV. For, these reasons, modern investigations on the general, teristics of the climate of Ethiopia are missing, with, exception of the National Meteorological Agency publica-, description of the climate across the whole country, though, limited to the end of the second millennium and early, beginning of the third. March shows statistically significant decreasing trend at p = 0.1 level. 23, No. whereas annual rainfalls tend to decrease with the spring, Ethiopia is among the largest countries of Africa and it is, characterized by a wide variety of landscapes, with marked, contrasts in relief and altitudes ranging from about 155 m, below sea level of Assale Lake, in the Danakil depression, to, reasons and given its geographic position close to the, equator and the Indian Ocean, the country is subjected to, large spatial variations in temperature and precipitation (see, circulations as well as by the complex topography of the, country. Influenza sentinel surveillance data collected from 3 influenza like illness (ILI) and 5 Severe Acute Respiratory Illness (SARI) sites from 2012 to 2017 was used for analysis. Evapotranspiration is limited by soil moisture supply, sur-, face and atmospheric temperature and the dew point, ration, temperature, and precipitation is particularly pro-, nounced in moisture-limited subtropical regions at the. In fact, it includes several maps, depicting the spatial distribution of a few climatic parameters. The sun only shines two to four hours a day. Figure. This procedure, seems, at least, questionable; in fact, it does not avert the, data limitations and introduces arbitrary conditions that are, not necessarily making the data analysis stronger or more, Spatial distribution of rainfall has been investigated also, their study focused mainly on monthly precipitation. local physiography nor by the expansion of the urban areas. Rainfall during the 1990s has seen a return to more humid conditions since the dry 1980s. 196 0 obj <>stream In summer, vice. The highest average and absolute rainfall intensities, are recorded at Gambela (89.4 and 181.4 mm/24 h, respec-, tively), whereas the lowest values are measured at Elidar and, Gewane in the Afar triangle.

The seasonal migration of inter-tropical convergence zone (ITCZ) together with the complex topographic features of the basin determines the rainfall occurrence in the region (AU and FAO 2012; ... For instance, Mamara et al. 9. Mixing of waters from shallow and deep aquifer systems is minimal and possible only through interconnected fractures. Seasonal rainfall in Ethiopia is driven mainly by the migration of the Inter‐Tropical Convergence Zone (ITCZ). Daily Minimum temperature: Minimum temperature during continuous time interval of 24 hours: Dry bulb temperature In summer, the Guinean monsoon, consisting of, equatorial warm and humid winds, results in bountiful rains, Such a complex meteorological framework is re, the distribution of annual precipitation. Addis Ababa University Press, Addis Ababa, Gamachu D (1988) Some patterns of altitudinal variation of climatic, elements in the mountainous regions of Ethiopia. located in the adjoining territories of Djibouti, Eritrea, Somalia, and Sudan, were considered as well (Table, order to account also for the conditions right beyond the, Ethiopian borders and thus to improve as much as possible. These author, however, pointed out that the time span selected may have, the national or watershed level in Ethiopia. Conway D, Mould C, Bewket W (2004) Over one century of rainfall, and temperature observations in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. A major challenge to climate-related research is the lack of a well-documented historical climate dataset. Earlier stages of Afar development (since 31-25 Ma) were most likely related to the large-scale rotation of the Arabian plate. 22. Chernet T (1982) Hydrogeology of the Lakes Region, Ethiopia. Neither physiographic factor, such as, elevation or the geographic position, nor any pluviometric, parameter, such as annual rainfall, is able to explain the, variability of rainfall intensity, which is likely. The best time and weather to travel to Ethiopia 2020. Furthermore, Mann-Kendall test was used to detect the time series trend. Nationally, 2009 was the second driest year, surpassed only by the historic year 1984.

The influenza virus spreads rapidly around the world in seasonal epidemics, resulting in significant morbidity and mortality. Monthly and annual, rainfall totals and the number of rainy days at stations in and near, the Nile basin for the period ending 1937. The strong inter‐annual and inter‐decadal variability in Ethiopia’s rainfall makes it difficult to detect long‐term trends. The thermal transition from, ). This paper presents a review of climate variability in the northeast Ethiopian Highlands, particularly Wollo and Tigray, during the last 10000 years (the Holocene) and an analysis of rainfall variability during the historical period. In much of Ethiopia, similar to the Sahelian countries to its west, rainfall from June to September contributes the majority of the annual total, and is crucial to Ethiopia's water resource and agriculture operations. The study area is characterized by a semi-arid climate [24,25], and experiences the annual movement of the Intertropical Convergence Zone (ITCZ) within the Ethiopian section of the East African rift valley [24,26]. In the highlands, the coldest month is in the middle of. Data have been analyzed using coefficient of variation, anomaly index, precipitation concentration index and Palmer drought severity index. Several papers have been published on different issues regarding the climate of Ethiopia or of some specific region.

Rainy season (June to September) Temperatures are stable (20°) and rainfall (thunderstorms) is abundant. Due to renewed interest in hydropower dams in the face of climate change, it is important to assess dam operations and management in combination with downstream impacts on rivers in (semi-)arid environments. Though, marked differences are observed for the average annual and, the Omo valley, the climate of Ethiopia is generally very, pleasant and among the most equilibrate of the African, continent since the temperatures are mitigated by the high, average elevation. Hydraulic conductivity is higher for fracture dominant aquifers than weathered rock aquifers. The F-distribution test was used to determine the statistical significance of the trends. Especially, ambient temperature plays a major role in the life cycle of the malaria vector. SINET: Ethiopian Journal of Science Vol. Finally, Jury and, analyzed the temperature and rainfall trends for the 1948, 2006 interval and performed a simulation projecting these, trends to 2050 under the assumption of a gradual doubling. Whole territory of Ethiopia is located in equatorial and subequatorial climate zones however altitude variety brings some features to weather conditions of the country. The average annual temperature in Lemmi is 17.4 °C | 63.2 °F.

FAO obtained these data from the National, concise description of the Main Ethiopian Rift Valley cli-. Unlike our expectations, annual and seasonal rainfall totals showed increasing trends while maximum and minimum temperatures showed decreasing trends. Precipitation in Ethiopia averaged 68.03 mm from 1901 until 2015, reaching an all time high of 419.92 mm in August of 1950 and a record low of 0.05 mm in January of 1923. Hourly data for Mekele and Ziway show that, map reported by these authors, partly mitigates, Mean maximum and minimum monthly temperatures at Dire. Therefore, integrated multi-criteria land suitability analysis and mapping for contrasting malt barley varieties was carried out to identify where and how much potentially suitable land exists in the country. Different reports showed the large contrasts in elevation and topography that characterize the country are very effective in controlling local climate conditions to such an extent that even sites within a short distance may show very different climatic conditions, ... Rainfall and temperature patterns vary widely because of Ethiopia's location in the tropics and its diverse topography. of the Equator. Bollett Soc, Viste E, Korecha D, Sorteberg A (2013) Recent drought and, precipitation tendencies in Ethiopia. Upward trends in air temperature of + 0.03 °C year−1 and downward trends in rainfall of − 0.4 mm month−1 year−1 have been observed over Ethiopia's southwestern region in the period 1948‐2006. 2012;Štěpánek et al. However, trends of rainfall events such as onset date, cessation date, LGP, and dry spell length were changed significantly in most stations, which agreed with the farmers’ perception. is sensitive to the weather and climate.

In the long run, global warming can be slowed down or maybe even stopped, if the international community manages to drastically reduce the emission of greenhouse gases. Mean annual rainfall of the watershed is > 1600 mm. The paper ends with a discussion of the major influences on rainfall variability over the Ethiopian Highlands: the El Niño-Southern Oscillation - El Niño events tend to be associated with lower than average rainfall; Atlantic, Indian and Pacific Ocean sea surface temperatures play a varying role in different seasons; the strength of the Indian Summer Monsoon; and the frequency of several tropical depressions over the Southwest Indian Ocean. doi: ENRAEMED (2003) Ethiopian natural resources and environmental, Eredia F, DeCastro L (1914) Sula climatologia dell, Ethiopian Mapping Authority (EMA) (1988) The National Atlas of, Fantoli A (1940) Elementi preliminari del clima dell, Fantoli A (1965) Contributo alla climatologia dell, FAO (1984) Agroclimatological data for Africa, vol 1: Countries North.
