It seems you're looking for literature and studies on climatological factors influencing hazards in coastal regions of Sub-Saharan Africa, focusing on the factors' frequency, intensity, and spatial distribution. Below are some studies and reviews that may help: 1. Anthony, E. J., Marriner, N., & Morhange, C. (2014). "Human influence and the changing geomorphology of Mediterranean deltas and coasts over the last 6,000 years: from progradation to destruction phase?" Earth-Science Reviews, 139, 336-361. This review provides information on human-induced changes and their impact on the geomorphology of deltas and coastal regions. 2. Brown, S., Nicholls, R. J., Goodwin, P., Haigh, I. D., Lincke, D., Vafeidis, A. T., & Hinkel, J. (2018). "Quantifying Land and People Exposed to Sea-Level Rise with No Mitigation and 1.5°C and 2.0°C Rise in Global Temperatures to Year 2300." Earth's Future, 6(3), 583-600. The researchers simulate future sea-level rise and its effects, including acting as a hazard. 3. Niang, I., Ruppel, O. C., Abdrabo, M. A., Essel, A., Lennard, C., Padgham, J., & Urquhart, P. (2014). "Africa." In Climate Change 2014: Impacts, Adaptation, and Vulnerability. Part B: Regional Aspects. Contribution of Working Group II to the Fifth Assessment Report of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, pp. 1199-1265). Cambridge University Press. This is a comprehensive report on climate change impacts in Africa, including Sub-Saharan coastal regions. 4. Dosio, A., & Panitz, H. J. (2016). "Climate change projections for CORDEX-Africa with COSMO-CLM regional climate model and differences with the driving global climate models." Climate Dynamics, 46(5-6), 1599-1625. This study presents simulations on future climate factors in Africa, including a focus on the frequency, intensity, and spatial distribution. 5. Thieler, E. R., & Hammar-Klose, E. S. (1999). "National Assessment of Coastal Vulnerability to Sea-Level Rise: Preliminary Results for the US Atlantic Coast." U.S. Geological Survey, Open-File Report 99-593. This could be useful for reference, as it explains methods to assess coastal vulnerability that could be applied to Sub-Saharan Africa. Please remember to include proper citation when using any information presented in these references.
