NOAA's Climate Program Office (CPO) is co-sponsoring an international conference on El Niño 2015, Shared Experiences: 20 Years of Climate Services and Framing the Next Steps in the Research and Development for Climate Resilience.
The Alaska Center for Climate Assessment and Policy (ACCAP), a RISA program, has a new publication in Climate Risk Management.
Process understanding of the Madden-Julian Oscillation (MJO) has increased dramatically over the past decade, but many observed features of the MJO are not well explained by physical mechanisms believed to underlie the phenomenon. New CVP-supported research published in the Journal of Climate examines Moist Static Energy (MSE) and moisture budgets to understand MJO moisture variations.
The Climate Program Office helped lead the U.S. delegation of the Global Framework for Climate Services (GFCS) Intergovernmental Board on Climate Services (IBCS) Management Committee meeting. The GFCS is a UN-led initiative, reporting to the World Meteorological Organization, which provides a worldwide mechanism for coordinated actions to enhance the quality, quantity and application of climate services.
A new paper in the Journal of Geophysical Research: Oceans explores the ability of 2-dimensional and 3-dimensional storm surge models to simulate current, sediment transport, and the effects of vegetation on storm surge.
About the Climate Program OfficeThe Climate Program Office (CPO) manages competitive research programs in which NOAA funds high-priority climate science, assessments, decision support research, outreach, education, and capacity-building activities designed to advance our understanding of Earth’s climate system, and to foster the application of this knowledge in risk management and adaptation efforts. CPO-supported research is conducted in regions across the United States, at national and international scales, and globally. Learn more...
