Mississippi River Basin Flooding Predictability Improved by Linking Patterns in the tropical Pacific and North Atlantic 6 January 2023

Mississippi River Basin Flooding Predictability Improved by Linking Patterns in the tropical Pacific and North Atlantic

Improvements in flood predictability along the Mississippi River by a COM-funded study use a high-quality dataset spanning the past 1,000 years to link tropical Pacific and North Atlantic patterns to regional hydroclimate.

Modeling Study Based on Hurricane Harvey Improves Flooding Predictions with Climate Change 6 January 2023

Modeling Study Based on Hurricane Harvey Improves Flooding Predictions with Climate Change

New modeling framework supported by CVP uses Hurricane Harvey as a case study to improve the predictability over the next seventy years of precipitation and flooding due to hurricanes and climate change.

New publication on ensemble-based forecasting for Tropical Cyclone Isaias (2020) co-authored by Philip Orton, Principal Investigator with the Consortium for Climate Risk in the Urban Northeast (CCRUN) 15 September 2022

New publication on ensemble-based forecasting for Tropical Cyclone Isaias (2020) co-authored by Philip Orton, Principal Investigator with the Consortium for Climate Risk in the Urban Northeast (CCRUN)

The study, published in the Journal of Weather and Climate Extremes, found that the use of ensemble-based flood forecasting systems are more advanced than single forecasting systems, as they provide better information that can be used in emergency management decision making in the event of a disaster.

New study, funded by the California-Nevada Applications Program (CNAP), a NOAA RISA team, explores climate change impact on future atmospheric river flood damages in the western U.S. 19 August 2022

New study, funded by the California-Nevada Applications Program (CNAP), a NOAA RISA team, explores climate change impact on future atmospheric river flood damages in the western U.S.

The study, published in the Journal of Scientific Reports, reveals that annual expected atmospheric river-related flood damages in the western United States could increase significantly, raising important questions for policymakers aiming to target efforts to more effectively adapt to climate change.
