Attributing observed Greenland responses to natural and anthropogenic climate forcings 8 June 2015

Attributing observed Greenland responses to natural and anthropogenic climate forcings

Research supported by the NOAA Climate Program Office has recently been published in the journal Climate Dynamics. The paper by Andres and Peltier, "Attributing observed Greenland responses to natural and anthropogenic climate forcings," enhances our understanding of the contributions of anthropogenic forcing and natural variability to changing precipitation, increased surface temperatures, and subsequent melting of the Greenland Ice Sheet.

The Chemistry of Atmospheric Brown Carbon

A team of scientists partially funded by CPO's Atmospheric Chemistry, Carbon Cycle, & Climate (AC4) program published a Chemical Reviews article on the chemistry of atmospheric "brown carbon,"-- the atmospheric aerosol contributing to the brown color of smoggy air.

NOAA’s Climate Program Office awards $22.3 million to advance climate science 10 February 2015

NOAA’s Climate Program Office awards $22.3 million to advance climate science

NOAA’s Climate Program Office (CPO) has awarded more than $22.3 million to support 77 multi-year projects conducted by research partners.  With these new awards, CPO helps improve the breadth and scope of climate research, and offers opportunities for collaboration within and integration between programs. Potential research results will likely have impacts far beyond individual projects and funding programs.
