NIDIS has released its Strategic Plan for the Missouri River Basin Drought Early Warning System. The document outlines priority tasks to build drought early warning capacity and resilience. The plan also includes considerations of the effects of the 2017 Northern Plains flash drought.
Can semi-continuous carbon dioxide measurements taken from an instrument placed on top of a mobile light rail tram usefully improve urban emission estimates? Researchers, funded in part by CPO’s Atmospheric Chemistry, Carbon Cycle, & Climate (AC4) program, demonstrate not only that the measurements improve emission estimates but also that the measurements better capture spatial differences in emissions.
A research team, funded in part by CPO’s Atmospheric Chemistry, Carbon Cycle, & Climate (AC4) program, participated in the 2018 WE-CAN field campaign and used resulting emission samples from 23 wildfires to better understand reactive nitrogen in wildfire plumes in order to improve air quality forecasts.
Join NOAA and the Water Research Foundation, along with four water management practitioners, to learn about reevaluating stormwater design and flooding management. These talks are highlights from the recent workshop series, “Climate and Weather Information for Small- and Medium-size Water Utilities.”
Funded in part by CPO’s Atmospheric Chemistry, Carbon Cycle, & Climate program, this study analyzed trends in two well-known precursors of ozone and their relationship to high ozone events in the Los Angeles basin over the last two decades. In particular, continued heat events will probably be associated with more high ozone events.
University of Washington researchers, funded in part by CPO’s Climate Observation and Monitoring (COM) program show that coral-only proxy reconstructions are more skillful with regards to tropical Pacific variability in the Nino 3.4 region (central, equatorial pacific) and show an unexpected climate responses to early 19th century volcanic eruptions.
