The Pacific Northwest Climate Impacts Research Consortium recently released the second issue of Northwest Climate, a magazine with stories about climate science and adaptation initiatives in the Pacific Northwest.
A CPO-funded study published in the Journal of Hydrometeorology found after simulation experiments that climate variability phenomena can greatly influence water availability of the Missouri River basin.
NOAA’s Climate Program Office (CPO) has awarded $44.34 million for 73 new projects designed to help advance the understanding, modeling, and prediction of Earth’s climate system and to foster effective decision making.
In FY16 the AC4 program funded 10 new projects consisting of 17 individual grants totaling $6.5 million to universities and non-Federal research laboratories. The projects will support the Fire Influence on Regional and Global Environments Experiment (FIREX) led by NOAA’s Chemical Science Division.
NOAA’s Climate Variability and Predictability (CVP) program competitively funded 12 new three-year projects totaling $4.0 million in grants and $1.4 million in other awards to support 30 researchers, postdocs, and students at 16 institutions.
NOAA’s Modeling, Analysis, Predictions, and Projections (MAPP) program—in partnership with the National Weather Service’s Office of Science and Technology—is funding 14 new three-year competitively funded projects involving $5.5 million in grants and $1.2 million in other awards.
To help decision makers better prepare for and respond to climate-related impacts and extreme events, CPO’s Sectoral Applications Research Program (SARP) will fund six new two-year projects in FY16 for a total of $1.4 million
