Have you ever wanted to test your climate prediction skills against the experts’? Now you can! Today, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) Climate.gov team released Climate Challenge, a new educational online game that invites players to learn more about climate science and to test their knowledge.
Research supported by NOAA’s Climate Program Office, “Glacial isostatic adjustment, relative sea level history and mantle viscosity: reconciling relative sea level model predictions for the U.S. East coast with geological constraints,” was accepted for publication in Geophysical Journal International on Feb. 9, 2015.
The NOAA CPO Modeling, Analysis, Prediction, and Projections (MAPP) program hosted a webinar on the topic of Modeling the Stratosphere: Ozone, Reanalysis, Predictability, and connections with the Troposphere on March 18 from 2-3 p.m. ET. The announcement is provided below; you are invited to remotely join the session.
The International Research Institute for Climate and Society recently released an article taking a look back at their work over the past year, as well as a look ahead to future work this year.
The International Research and Applications Project (IRAP), funded by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration and the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID), supports IRI and the University of Arizona to develop tools and frameworks with local organizations that will increase climate resilience in these vulnerable regions.
This series is co-sponsored by the NOAA Sectoral Applications Research Program (SARP), US National Integrated Drought Information System (NIDIS), Water Research Foundation, Water Environment Federation (WEF), Water Environment Research Foundation (WERF), American Water Works Association (AWWA), the Association of Metropolitan Water Agencies (AMWA) and EPA’s Climate Ready Water Utility Initiative.
As another example of NOAA’s ongoing atmospheric measurements providing an early warning system to ensure sustainable development on global scales, a new study co-authored by Stephen Montzka of ESRL and supported by the CPO/AC4 program has found that atmospheric concentrations of chlorinated hydrocarbon (dichloromethane) gas have increased by a factor of 2 since the late 1990s throughout the globe.
