CPO/IRAP-supported research explores critical gaps in understanding climate-related mosquito-borne disease transmission 7 August 2020

CPO/IRAP-supported research explores critical gaps in understanding climate-related mosquito-borne disease transmission

In recent years, there has been an alarming uptick in the number and geographic spread of mosquito-borne diseases, and the places where mosquitoes can thrive due to the temperature and precipitation of the area are shifting and growing as global temperatures rise and precipitation becomes more variable.

Study introduces new model processing technique, shows North Atlantic climate highly predictable 4 August 2020

Study introduces new model processing technique, shows North Atlantic climate highly predictable

Climate model projections can be hindered by complexities inherent in the climate system, and difficulty in detecting the part of the forecast that can be accurately predicted (signals) as well as constraining uncertainties (noise). These problems can be hard to fix, as climate model projections cannot be verified until there are observations.
