Abstract

An analysis of the 1992-93 drought in eastern South Africa is undertaken for various climatic variables from ECMWF data. Increase westerly winds with surface marine lows and continental highs over southern Africa are prominent features that sustained drought in that period. Anomalous low-level divergence and mid-level subsidence were coupled with reduced tropical moist inflows. - (AJC)
