President Barack Obama signed the National Integrated Drought Information System Reauthorization Act into law in order to ensure that the federal government can provide timely, effective drought warning forecasts and vital support to communities that are vulnerable to drought.
A paper funded by CPO's Climate Variability and Predictability program has been accepted for publication into Geophysical Research Letters. The paper, titled: "Stochastic forcing of north tropical Atlantic sea surface temperatures by the North Atlantic Oscillation," showed that NAO-generated forcing of SST during boreal winter and spring is responsible for more than half the statistically unpredictable component of SST in the main development region for Atlantic hurricanes during the subsequent summer and fall.
