Accurately simulating summertime large-scale circulation, as well as the cloud response to circulation, is a critical step toward increasing the reliability of seasonal sea ice forecasts and the rate of future sea ice loss.
In NCEI’s database of billion-dollar flooding disasters, many of the most significant events occur in the late Winter or early Spring due to rain and snowmelt overcoming stream and river channel capacity. These events individually frequently reach $5-10 billion in damages.
CPO’s Climate Variability & Predictability (CVP) program funded research which contributed the newest edition of The Multiscale Global Monsoon System, part of the World Scientific Series on Asia-Pacific Weather and Climate.
This study analyzes the year-to-year variability of the MJO propagation speed (how fast it moves across the Indo-Pacific region) by analyzing a century-long historical dataset, providing further insights into the fundamental physics regulating MJO propagation.
A new study investigates the role of land breeze and gravity waves in nighttime rainfall migration off the west coast of Sumatra, with a specific focus on the properties (frequency, speed, intraseasonal and seasonal variations) of this offshore rainfall.
NOAA buoy observations collectively enabled a systemic synoptic-scale analysis of a 39-year record of atmospheric rivers, offering a unique view of coastal air-sea processes at the time of atmospheric river landfall.
The webinar focused on climate adaptation investments, strategies for building more resilient communities, and the challenges and cost of incorporating climate considerations into local planning efforts.
