Different forces drive storm-induced sea level spikes on U.S. East, Gulf coasts, says CPO-funded study 13 February 2020

Different forces drive storm-induced sea level spikes on U.S. East, Gulf coasts, says CPO-funded study

Using a new powerful NOAA global climate model, NOAA and partner researchers show that big spikes in daily coastal sea levels will increase in the future from the Gulf Coast to the Atlantic coast as warming progresses, but will be driven by differing forces in these two regions.

Jin Huang, CPO Earth System Science and Modeling Division Chief, attended and presented at the Global Energy and Water Exchanges (GEWEX) Scientific Steering Group meeting to share CPO’s research efforts relevant to the U.S. GEWEX Program Office and thoughts on future U.S. GEWEX activities.

Just published: Methane emissions from regional oil and gas production can be observed from space 4 February 2020

Just published: Methane emissions from regional oil and gas production can be observed from space

Methane is the second most important anthropogenic greenhouse gas in the atmosphere after carbon dioxide, with U.S. oil and natural gas supply chain methane emissions, in particular, making up about 41% of anthropogenic emissions in the United States.

CPO-funded research develops first comprehensive Global Drought and Flood Catalogue 21 January 2020

CPO-funded research develops first comprehensive Global Drought and Flood Catalogue

The catalogue provides consistent estimates of large-scale drought and flood events over 1950-2016, their different characteristics, as well as long term risk.

Stratospheric variability influences emissions levels at Earth’s surface, study says 7 January 2020

Stratospheric variability influences emissions levels at Earth’s surface, study says

The new research in Nature Geoscience suggests that global budget estimates of ozone-depleting substances as well as other trace gases like methane could be improved by accounting for the Quasi-Biennial Oscillation’s influence.
