This invited review paper, published in Current Climate Change Reports, draws on CVP-supported research to broadly discuss the impact of ocean resolution in Earth System models and potential improvements.
Researchers funded by CVP studied the behavior of the marine atmospheric boundary layer in the presence of warm or cold fronts, with implications for climate models.
Researchers funded in part by the Climate Variability & Predictability (CVP) program showcase the potential for machine learning applications for ocean climate models.
According to the study, a ‘new’ Arctic climate, one with less sea ice, higher temperatures, and longer rainy seasons, will emerge by 2100.
The study, published in Nature, tracked the consecutive days that the atmosphere resides in a particular pattern associated with extreme temperatures and precipitation and found that these patterns are occurring more often as the Arctic warms faster than the mid-latitudes.
