Tropical storms like 2011’s Hurricane Irene experienced cooling in the coastal surface waters ahead of the eye of the hurricane, which reduced storm intensity, according to a CPO-funded study by Rutgers’ University Professor Scott Glenn and partners published in Nature Communications.
CPO's Climate Observation Division will help support the 11th 11th NOAA-Indonesia Ocean-Climate Observations, Analysis, and Applications Partnership Workshop, upcoming May 13-17.
The Regional Integrated Sciences and Assessments (RISA) program is proud to announce the release of Climate in Context: Science and Society Partnering for Adaptation, an edited volume being published by Wiley & Sons.
In a recent paper published in Environmental Research Letters, scientists with NOAA and the University of Miami have identified how patterns in the spring phases of the El Niño-Southern Oscillation (ENSO), coupled with variability in North Atlantic sea surface temperatures, could help predict U.S. regional tornado outbreaks.
Driven by feedback from water resource managers, federal agencies and others, NOAA and partners have developed the Water Resources Dashboard: a one-stop website for relevant water data on drought, flooding, precipitation, climate and other measures.
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...
