Dr. Phil Mote of the CIRC RISA in the Pacific Northwest will be presenting, “IPCC Fifth Assessment Report — Summary of the Science of Climate Change” as part of the NWS Climate Services Seminar Series.
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.
A paper funded by the Climate Program Office’s MAPP and ESS programs was published in the Bulletin of the American Meteorological Society (BAMS) in December. The paper – titled “Madden-Julian Oscillation – Bridging Weather and Climate” – shows that the MJO, which sits in a time frame between weather (less than 10 days) and climate (90 days and longer), can affect both weather and climate and plays a critical role in connecting or bridging the two.
The Alaska Center for Climate Assessment and Policy (a RISA program) will host a Webinar on Tuesday, Feb. 18 from 10-11a.m. AKST. John Walsh of the University of Alaska Fairbanks and Lena Krutikov from the Scenarios Network for Alaska and Arctic Planning will present.
As part of the Spring Noontime Webinars, the Center for Technology and Policy Research and CIRES (along with the Western Water Assessment) will host a Webinar on Feb. 12 at 12 p.m. MT (2 p.m. EST) titled “The Energy-Water Nexus: Where Climate Adaptation and Greenhouse Gas Mitigation Policies Collide.”
As part of the Spring Noontime Webinars, the Center for Technology and Policy Research and CIRES will host a Webinar on Jan. 29 at 12 p.m. MT titled “Place Attachment, Performance, and Climate Change Adaptation.”
The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, a Federal agency within the Department of Commerce, is advertising for a Division Director within its Climate Program Office. The Division Director for the Climate Assessment and Services Division (CASD) provides leadership and support for research, assessments and climate services development activities designed to bring sound, interdisciplinary science to bear on climate-sensitive resource management and adaptation challenges in key sectors and regions.
