A research team funded by the Climate Program Office’s Climate Observations and Monitoring Program has published a new paper describing how the distribution of a volcanic eruption’s dispersal of sulfate aerosols impacts components of the climate system on regional and global scales. The paper, published online June 20, 2019 in Geophysical Research Letters, is entitled “Climate Impacts From Large Volcanic Eruptions in a High-Resolution Climate Model: The Importance of Forcing Structure.”
Since 2016, the Subseaonal-to-Seasonal (S2S) Task Force has been focusing efforts on bridging the skill gap between weather and seasonal prediction lead times. Publication of this special collection represents an important milestone for the group.
Columbia University highlights Mingfang Ting, James Kossin (NOAA NCEI), Cuihua Li, and Suzana Camargo's new hurricane intensity study, supported by NOAA Research's Modeling, Analysis, Predictions, and Projections Program (MAPP) Program,
Research led by MAPP supported PI, Dr. Suzana Camargo, examined the impact of volcanic aerosols on recent global tropical cyclone activity in observations, reanalysis, and models (including the CMIP5 multi-model).
Droughts have disastrous impacts on the agricultural, economic, and public health sectors. With the formation of droughts still being researched, scientists ability to forecast droughts for North America has been greatly affected.
