NOAA launches major field campaign to improve weather and climate prediction

Today, scientists using multiple human-piloted and autonomous vehicles, buoys, radar, and computer modeling embarked on a six-week scientific campaign off the island of Barbados to investigate how the ocean, atmosphere, and shallow clouds work together to create the weather and climate we live in.

AGU Townhall highlights CPO’s major successes over past two decades

The townhall brought together about 70 participants, including NOAA and nonNOAA scientists, to highlight the important role CPO has played in advancing understanding and prediction of the climate system through competitive research. 

Preparing for extreme sea levels is different depending on location and time, new study finds 18 December 2019

Preparing for extreme sea levels is different depending on location and time, new study finds

Using historical data from tide gauges that line U.S. coasts, researchers funded by CPO's Climate Observations and Monitoring Program created an extreme sea level indicator that identifies how much of a role different major weather and ocean forces have played in affecting extreme sea levels in coastal areas around the country.

Bridging the Weather-Climate Prediction Skill Gap with a Multi-Model Experiment 18 December 2019

Bridging the Weather-Climate Prediction Skill Gap with a Multi-Model Experiment

Researchers have for years been working to tackle the subseasonal to seasonal (S2S) prediction problem to improve forecasts. The Subseasonal Experiment, SubX, is an interagency research-to-operations project designed to help tackle this problem. The results of the project were recently published in BAMS. 

New model for predicting nitrous oxide emissions from agricultural soils 9 December 2019

New model for predicting nitrous oxide emissions from agricultural soils

Agricultural activities are the main source of nitrous oxide emissions from human activities, but there is limited attention to agriculture as a major contributor to increasing emissions likely from a lack of understanding of mechanisms controlling nitrous oxide emissions.
