Research funded by CPO’s Climate Variability and Predictability (CVP) and published in the Journal of Climate found that increased carbon dioxide suppresses variability of the Atlantic Meridional Overturning Circulation (AMOC) in GFDL ESM2M simulation.
A new report, published in The Annual Review of Marine Science by Lynne Talley et. al., emphasized that GO-SHIP helped highlight the ocean’s role in climate change, carbon cycling, and biogeochemical responses to climate change.
A new report summarizes key findings from the joint NOAA and U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) high resolution modeling workshop held at the NOAA Center for Weather and Climate Prediction in College Park, Maryland on September 30th through October 2nd. Overall, the workshop report states that there have been some promising efforts in the climate predictions (weeks to seasons) and long-term projections communities to explore using high resolution to improve climate models and prediction.
The 20th century saw the fastest rise in global sea level (GSL) in 27 centuries, according to a new report supported by NOAA. Partners from Rutgers’ University, Tufts’ University, NOAA, and other researchers foreign and domestic utilized new statistical modeling techniques that permitted observation of GSL rise and projections for GSL in the 21st century. Previous statistical modeling could only focus at the regional and local levels.
NOAA’s Climate Program Office released its FY15 Annual Report on March 11, 2016. The report gives an overview of CPO’s achievements in FY15 and highlights the great work done by the Office’s Divisions and Programs to advance scientific understanding of climate and improve society’s ability to plan and respond to a changing climate.
