Comparing Two Generations of Climate Model Simulations and Projections of Regional Climate Processes for North America

Friday, October 09, 2015

A technical report produced by the NOAA CMIP5 Task Force analyzes how CMIP5--the latest generation of climate model simulations--compares to CMIP3 simulations and projections of regional climate processes for North America.

MAPP Webinar Series: Long-term Climate Outlooks for North America: Understanding Models to Interpret Projections and Early Plans for CMIP6

Tuesday, February 18, 2014
The NOAA CPO Modeling, Analysis, Prediction, and Projections (MAPP) program will host a webinar on the topic of CMIP5 results for North American and CMIP6 plans, Tuesday, February 25. This webinar will discuss ongoing work analyzing CMIP5 20th century simulations and 21st century projections for North America. Talks will highlight ongoing activities of the NOAA CMIP5 Task Force, including work being done with the applications/user community and modeling centers. An update on the plans for CMIP6 will also be presented. The announcement is provided below; you are invited to remotely join the session.

A milestone in advancing the physical science basis of climate variability and change

Friday, September 27, 2013

The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) 5th Assessment Report on “The Physical Science Basis” of climate change has been completed and will appear online on Sept. 30, 2013. This report represents a milestone in the understanding of the Earth system and climate science. Scientific research funded by NOAA’s Climate Program Office (CPO) is foundational to advancing IPCC reports. CPO supports climate science research reflected in the IPCC’s report through its Climate Observations and Monitoring (COM); Earth System Science (ESS); and Modeling, Analysis, Predictions, and Projections (MAPP) programs.

MAPP Webinar

Monday, April 22, 2013

The NOAA CPO Modeling, Analysis, Predictions, and Projections (MAPP) program hosted a webinar on May 2, 2012 titled "Evaluation of CMIP5 Model Experiments".

MAPP Webinar

Tuesday, October 30, 2012
The NOAA CPO Modeling, Analysis, Predictions, and Projections (MAPP) program hosted a webinar on Tuesday, November 13 titled “CMIP5 Projections.”

The Modeling, Analysis, Predictions, and Projections (MAPP) Program's mission is to enhance the Nation's capability to understand and predict natural variability and changes in Earth's climate system. The MAPP Program supports development of advanced climate modeling technologies to improve simulation of climate variability, prediction of future climate variations from weeks to decades, and projection of long-term future climate conditions. To achieve its mission, the MAPP Program supports research focused on the coupling, integration, and application of Earth system models and analyses across NOAA, among partner agencies, and with the external research community.
