Women’s History Month: A conversation with Dr. Angeline Pendergrass

In honor of Women's History Month, NOAA is highlighting a few of its female scientists and funded researchers who are making significant strides in the climate sciences and other science fields. The following interview features Dr. Angeline Pendergrass, Assistant Professor in the Department of Earth and Atmospheric Science at Cornell University and Project Scientist I at the National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR). She is a co-lead of the NOAA CMIP6 Task Force, which is funded by the NOAA Climate Program Office’s Modeling, Analysis, Predictions, and Projections (MAPP) Program. She focuses on extreme precipitation and its response to climate variability and change.

Modeling water availability during droughts in the Texas-Gulf region 29 March 2021

Modeling water availability during droughts in the Texas-Gulf region

Occurring frequently over the Southern Plains, droughts are the second most costly U.S. weather and climate disaster. Many efforts have been made to advance drought monitoring, but modeling water variability during drought remains a challenge as numerous physical processes control soil moisture variability.

Women's History Month: A conversation with Dr. Elizabeth Barnes

In honor of Women's History Month, NOAA is highlighting a few of its female scientists and funded researchers who are making significant strides in the climate sciences and other science fields. The following interview is with Dr. Elizabeth Barnes, Associate Professor in the Department of Atmospheric Science at Colorado State University. Her research is funded in part by the NOAA Climate Program Office’s Modeling, Analysis, Predictions, and Projections (MAPP) Program. She focuses on climate variability and change, and how data science can help improve our understanding.

Research Highlights Role of Coastal Ocean in Influencing Atmospheric River Intensity 24 February 2021

Research Highlights Role of Coastal Ocean in Influencing Atmospheric River Intensity

NOAA buoy observations collectively enabled a systemic synoptic-scale analysis of a 39-year record of atmospheric rivers, offering a unique view of coastal air-sea processes at the time of atmospheric river landfall.

Emissions of a Banned Ozone-depleting Gas are Back on the Decline 9 February 2021

Emissions of a Banned Ozone-depleting Gas are Back on the Decline

Discovery in 2018 posed first real test of the Montreal Protocol

New analyses of global air measurements show that five years after an unexpected spike in emissions of the banned ozone-depleting chemical chlorofluorocarbon CFC-11, they dropped sharply between 2018 and 2019.
