The distribution of rainfall in tropical Africa is controlled by the African rainbelt, which oscillates on a seasonal basis. The rainbelt has varied on centennial to millennial timescales along with changes in Northern Hemisphere high-latitude climate, the Atlantic meridional overturning circulation and low-latitude insolation over the past glacial-interglacial cycle. However, the overall dynamics of the African rainbelt remain poorly constrained and are not always consistent with a latitudinal...[Show more]
