During her fellowship tenure, she will investigate the impact of climate change on the production of some selected crops in Ghana. Dr Ossénatou Mamadou is a Lecturer and Researcher at the Institute of Mathematics and Physical Sciences in Benin, she will use a wavelet transform to identify cycle and periodicities in surface ecosystems exchanges in order to understand how land use and land cover changes may affect them under climate change. Dr Lala Kounta is a Physical Oceanographer, she proposes to explore the role of the ocean current on regional/local climate modulation, particularly the role of the West African Boundary Current (WABC) as a determinant of Senegalese atmospheric and oceanic conditions on hot days which presents significant risks to public health and marine ecosystems.
