A study funded in part by the CPO’s Climate Observation Division and published in Ocean Dynamics assessed the baroclinic structure and variability of the Brazilian Current near 22° S.
New CPO-supported research found that decreasing Arctic sea ice has been an important contributor to changes in atmospheric circulation and temperature, both factors promoting Greenland’s surface melt.
An assessment of in situ sea level atmospheric pressure data from NOAA’s Global Drifter Program and other international partners demonstrates that surface velocity drifters contribute crucial information for marine weather prediction.
Research supported by CPO's Climate Observation Division outlines new facts on the dynamics controlling Atlantic meridional overturning circulation (MOC) variability and highlights some of the unexpected interplay between the density variations in the deep portions of the western region and the direct wind forcing across the basin.
NOAA's Climate Program Office released its FY15 Annual Report on March 11, 2016. The report gives an overview of CPO's achievements in FY15 and highlights the great work done by the Office's Divisions and Programs to advance scientific understanding of climate and improve society's ability to plan and respond to a changing climate.
