Vegetation-Rainfall Feedbacks in Africa (VERA)
The VERA project is looking at the feedbacks on a range of scales (4km, 12km and 40km) and across several different periods. The project is run from Leeds University and the Centre for Ecology and Hydrology(CEH) are providing soil moisture, vegetation and soil ancillaries. CMS have provided the remaining ancillary files and used the SWAMMA model with VERA diagnostics to do the analysis. The first period (April-July 2014) is almost complete. The model runs are carried out on ARCHER and the data is being stored on JASMIN. The project is expected to produce around 85TB of data.
