Stephen Rwigi, Lecturer

Stephen Rwigi is currently lecturing in hydrometeorology and surface water resources in the Department of Meteorology.  His most recent research is the assessment of the impacts of climate change and deforestation on surface water resources in the Mau forest complex in Kenya.  Some of the published work from this research includes simulated impacts of climate change on surface water yields over the Sondu basin in Kenyaand assessment of potential changes in hydrologically relevant rainfall statistics over the Sondu river basin in Kenya under a changing climate.

In relation the BRECcIA project Stephen willcontributing his knowledge of hydrometeorology and modelling to water and food security in the drylands; specifically modelling of rainfall-runoff relationships in the drylands environment under a changing climate.
