Research by the North American Multi-Model Ensemble (NMME), "Phase-1 Seasonal to Interannual Prediction, Phase-2 Toward Developing Intra-Seasonal Prediction," will be published in the April issue of the Bulletin of the American Meteorological Association.

Thirty-two-year ocean–atmosphere coupled downscaling of global reanalysis over the Intra-American Seas 22 January 2014

Thirty-two-year ocean–atmosphere coupled downscaling of global reanalysis over the Intra-American Seas

Research funded by CPO’s Modeling, Analysis, prediction, and Projections (MAPP) program was published online in Climate Dynamics on January 22, 2014.This study examines the oceanic and atmospheric variability over the Intra-American Seas (IAS) from a 32-year integration of a 15-km coupled regional climate model consisting of the Regional Spectral Model (RSM) for the atmosphere and the Regional Ocean Modeling System (ROMS) for the ocean.

NOAA-funded research could help early prediction of extreme heat waves 5 November 2013

NOAA-funded research could help early prediction of extreme heat waves

New research partially funded by NOAA’s Modeling, Analysis, Predictions, and Projections (MAPP) program may enable longer-term forecasts of U.S. heat waves. Scientists from the National Center for Atmospheric Research have fingerprinted a distinctive atmospheric wave pattern high above the Northern Hemisphere that can foreshadow the emergence of summertime heat waves in the United States more than two weeks in advance.

MAPP-funded research aims to advance understanding and ability to predict year-to-year climate variations   28 October 2013

MAPP-funded research aims to advance understanding and ability to predict year-to-year climate variations

NOAA’S Modeling, Analysis, Predictions, and Projections (MAPP) program awarded $8.6 million to support 10 new multi-year projects in which university partners and federal researchers will incorporate real-world observations into climate models and improve processes in those models to enhance the nation's ability to visualize, understand, and predict year-to-year climate variations. Specifically, MAPP funding will support targeted improvements in the representation of clouds and sea ice, critical elements of the climate system, in climate models.

MAPP kicks off Climate Reanalysis Task Force activities 27 September 2013

MAPP kicks off Climate Reanalysis Task Force activities

An initiative of NOAA’s Modeling Analysis Predictions, and Projection (MAPP) program, the Climate Reanalysis Task Force aims to advance NOAA’s climate reanalysis capability by focusing on research to address outstanding issues in atmospheric, ocean, and land reanalysis and develop a greater degree of integration among Earth system reanalysis components.

ABOUT OUR ORGANIZATION

Americans’ health, security and economic wellbeing are tied to climate and weather. Every day, we see communities grappling with environmental challenges due to unusual or extreme events related to climate and weather. In 2011, the United States experienced a record high number (14) of climate- and weather-related disasters where overall costs reached or exceeded $1 billion. Combined, these events claimed 670 lives, caused more than 6,000 injuries, and cost $55 billion in damages. Businesses, policy leaders, resource managers and citizens are increasingly asking for information to help them address such challenges.
