A paper supported by CPO’s Climate Observation Division (COD) was published in Geophysical Research Letters. The paper–Seasonal variations in the aragonite saturation state in the upper open-ocean waters of the North Pacific Ocean–was published online on June 16, 2015.
The 2014/15 Tropical Cyclone Season was a very interesting and unique year. The seasonal outlook issued in October 2014 originally called for 8-12 named storms with one Australian Category 5. Predictions were based on similar years with El Niño neutral or weak seasons.
NOAA colleagues from ESRL/CSD and AC4 will be hosting a virtual Town Hall, meant as an update to the FIREX white paper released last fall and AGU Town Hall on wildfires in a changing climate. Read more for a summary of the webinar and to learn how to register.
Please join us from 2-3PM EDT on Wednesday, September 2nd for our first webinar of the series, featuring presentations by Martha Buckley (Low-frequency SST and upper-ocean heat content variability in the North Atlantic) and Brian Soden (Mechanisms of Low-Frequency Variability of the Atmospheric Circulation Over the 20th Century).
