Researchers funded by CPO’s Climate Observations and Modeling (COM) program use a new method of climate index development to demonstrate the creation of directional wind indices and their potential application.
New research shows how climate change-induced increases in tropical cyclone activity leads to more phytoplankton blooms.
A new study provides an updated and more comprehensive view on historical hydroclimatic trends by quantifying how much of the changes in those trends can be attributed to external forcing vs. internal variability.
New research identifies important climate drivers affecting tundra vegetation productivity and points to potential methods of predicting vegetation a season or two ahead of time.
Climate scientists identify regional variations in snowpack melt as temperatures increase and present a theory that explains which mountain snowpacks worldwide are most “at-risk” from climate change.
