Improving Seasonal Forecasts of Tropical Cyclone Activity 4 January 2016

Improving Seasonal Forecasts of Tropical Cyclone Activity

Tropical cyclones are one of the biggest natural threats to society, causing substantial economic damage and loss of life annually. Accurate and reliable seasonal predictions of tropical cyclone activity are essential for disaster preparedness, but remain challenging for climate scientists. In a new MAPP-supported study, Manganello et al.
indicates that the potential for high-resolution coupled (atmosphere-ocean) modeling to improve seasonal forecasting of tropical cyclone activity may be greater than previously believed.

Science needs for sea level adaptation planning 19 October 2015

Science needs for sea level adaptation planning

A new paper by Lindeman et. al—supported by the Climate Program Office—performed a synthesis of science needs from coastal communities by reporting on workshops held in Florida, North Carolina, and Massachusetts. The paper, “Science Needs for Sea-Level Adaptation Planning: Comparisons among Three U.S. Atlantic Coastal Regions,” was published online in the journal of Coastal Management on October 14, 2015.

Comparing Two Generations of Climate Model Simulations and Projections of Regional Climate Processes for North America 9 October 2015

Comparing Two Generations of Climate Model Simulations and Projections of Regional Climate Processes for North America

A technical report produced by the NOAA CMIP5 Task Force analyzes how CMIP5--the latest generation of climate model simulations--compares to CMIP3 simulations and projections of regional climate processes for North America.
