Global climate model resolution significantly impacts modeled tropical cyclone response to increased CO2 and warming 26 August 2019

Global climate model resolution significantly impacts modeled tropical cyclone response to increased CO2 and warming

Researchers funded in part by the Climate Observations and Monitoring program, in collaboration with the Geophysical Fluid Dynamics Laboratory (GFDL), a NOAA facility at Princeton University, have published a new study that examines how projected climate features (global temperature, precipitation, and tropical cyclone activity) respond to increased CO2 conditions at varying resolution (25km vs. 50km vs. 200km). The article, “Tropical cyclone sensitivities to CO2 doubling: roles of atmospheric resolution, synoptic variability and background climate changes,” was published in the journal Climate Dynamics on August 13, 2019.

Improving understanding of circulation changes during hurricane intensification 16 August 2019

Improving understanding of circulation changes during hurricane intensification

A research team funded in part by the Climate Program Office’s Climate Observations and Monitoring Program, in collaboration with the Atlantic Oceanographic and Meteorological Laboratory’s Hurricane Research Division, has published a new paper describing the circulation changes that occur when hurricanes strengthen. The paper, published online July 17, 2019 in Monthly Weather Review, is entitled “Observed Kinematic and Thermodynamic Structure in the Hurricane Boundary Layer during Intensity Change.”
