The climatic consequences of a Pine Island Glacier collapse

New CVP-funded research published in the Journal of Climate by Green and Schmittner simulates the consequences of a rapid collapse of the Pine Island Glacier (PIG) under pre-industrial and anthropogenically-forced conditions.

CPO announces FY16 Federal Funding Opportunities

CPO’s Programs are seeking applications for 10 individual competitions in FY 2016. We estimate that $14 million will be available through this Announcement in FY 2016 for approximately 100 new awards pending budget appropriations.  It is anticipated that most awards will be at a funding level between $50,000 and $300,000 per year, with some exceptions for larger awards.  Visit cpo.noaa.gov/GrantsandProjects.aspx for more detailed information and instructions.

CVP-funded research tests microphysical schemes in the WRF model 9 June 2015

CVP-funded research tests microphysical schemes in the WRF model

esearch supported by NOAA CPO’s Climate Variability and Predictability (CVP) program has been accepted for publication in the Journal of Atmospheric Science. The paper by Li et al., "The sensitivity of simulated shallow cumulus convection and cold pools to microphysics," explores how two separate microphysical schemes (the Thompson and Morrison schemes) used in nested Weather Research and Forecasting (WRF) model simulations affect the generation of precipitation and evaporation in the model.

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.
