Sea level atmospheric pressure data crucial for marine weather forecasts, says new study

Thursday, May 19, 2016

An assessment of in situ sea level atmospheric pressure data from NOAA’s Global Drifter Program and other international partners demonstrates that surface velocity drifters contribute crucial information for marine weather prediction.

Chill Out: Cooling of Coastal Surface Waters Impacts Hurricane Intensity

Tuesday, April 26, 2016
Tropical storms like 2011’s Hurricane Irene experienced cooling in the coastal surface waters ahead of the eye of the hurricane, which reduced storm intensity, according to a CPO-funded study by Rutgers’ University Professor Scott Glenn and partners published in Nature Communications.
