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.

11th NOAA-Indonesia Ocean-Climate Observations, Analysis, and Applications Partnership Workshop

Tuesday, April 26, 2016

CPO's Climate Observation Division will help support the 11th 11th NOAA-Indonesia Ocean-Climate Observations, Analysis, and Applications Partnership Workshop, upcoming May 13-17. 

Fulfilling Observing System Implementation Requirements with the Global Drifter Array

Friday, April 22, 2016

Recent research supported by CPO's Climate Observation Division and published in the Journal of Atmospheric and Oceanic Technology examines the 5x5 degree resolution requirements for the Global Ocean Observing System's surface temperature and velocity measurements. 

Compensation between meridional flow components of the Atlantic MOC

Wednesday, April 20, 2016

Research supported by CPO's Climate Observation Division outlines new facts on the dynamics controlling Atlantic meridional overturning circulation (MOC) variability and highlights some of the unexpected interplay between the density variations in the deep portions of the western region and the direct wind forcing across the basin. 

A reanalysis of Hurricane Camille

Wednesday, April 13, 2016

A modern look at one of the United States’ most destructive hurricanes indicates that it was deeper than, but not quite as intense as, originally estimated. This research, funded by CPO’s Climate Observation Division, changed the ranking intensity of Hurricane Camille.
