The project will build on outcomes from NOAA’s community-led field campaigns, which have helped engage the Burlington community and have produced critical hyperlocal temperature information. But cities, and Vermont’s smaller cities and communities in particular, need more tools and resources to help them determine the most effective and efficient solutions tailored to their needs.
The recently published study shows how smoke-influenced clouds differ from their clean air counterparts, with complex implications for our weather and climate.
Study Helps Untangle the Relationship Between Arctic Sea Ice Loss and Climate Feedbacks in a Warming Arctic
New study clarifies the relationship between sea ice loss and the seasonal process of warm-season absorption and cold-season heat release by the Arctic Ocean.
Tropical cyclones are one of the most intense storm systems on earth and nearly one-third of global tropical cyclones form in the western North Pacific. So why was the 2020 season quiet? A new MAPP-funded study helps answer this question.
The new report describes a December 2020 workshop’s key takeaways and provides a list of priority actions to help both NIDIS and the broader research community advance flash drought research activities and tool development.
The webinar series features community case studies from the urban heat island mapping campaigns to show how cities are working to address extreme heat risk. The second webinar, “Conducting Heat Vulnerability Indices,” will highlight communities that are examining heat risk exposure and vulnerability.
U.S. CLIVAR Releases Research Challenge on Climate at the Coasts, Aligning with Current CPO Activities
The new white paper describing the research challenge identifies opportunities for increased understanding of U.S. coasts in the face of extreme weather and climate change.
The article covers how climate change has drastically weakened the system that drives Atlantic Ocean currents, the Atlantic Meridional Overturning Circulation (AMOC), close to a point that would drive major changes in our weather and climate.
A new study focuses on the relationship between radiative heating from clouds and tropical cyclone formation.
The webinar included an update on the current drought situation and outlook, an overview of wildland fire conditions, and featured perspectives from on-the-ground responders about the drought conditions in the West.
