A project supported by CPO’s Modeling, Analysis, Prediction, and Projections (MAPP) and Atmospheric Chemistry, Carbon Cycle, and Climate (AC4) programs has had new research published in Nature. The paper, “Agricultural Green Revolution as a driver of increasing atmospheric CO2 seasonal amplitude,” was published in the journal’s Nov. 19, 2014 issue.
Our series on “Climate Information for Managing Risks In Water Resources” is resuming on Tuesday Dec 3rd at 1:30 p.m. ET. Our first talk will be by Mark Deutschman, Ph.D., PE. Mark is a civil engineer and Vice President of Houston Engineering. He will discuss the work he has done with citizen groups in the Klamath Basin in developing a tool to provide climate and water resource data for decision-making.

New research published in The Proceeding of the Royal Society – Biological Sciences provides new insights on the threat ocean warming poses on coral growth in Mesoamerican barrier reefs. The research, partially funded by CPO’s Climate Monitoring program, used laboratory experiments to examine the adverse effects of ocean warming and acidification, and showed that the warming predicted by the IPCC for the end of the 21st century produced a five-fold decrease in coral calcification – the process by which corals produce calcium carbonate (CaCO3) and build reefs.
