COM Program-funded study helps improve understanding of how climate change may impact ENSO

El Nino Southern Oscillation (ENSO)-driven variations in sea surface temperatures over the tropical Pacific play a major role in seasonal rainfall changes in the United States and in driving weather and climate around the world. However, little is known about how ENSO will respond to anthropogenic changes in Earth’s climate.

Study helps bridge gap between temperature response to volcanic eruptions in paleoclimate data and model simulations 22 July 2020

Study helps bridge gap between temperature response to volcanic eruptions in paleoclimate data and model simulations

The discrepancies between simulations and reconstructions obstructs our ability to gain a better understanding of climate from these natural experiments.

No consistent ENSO response to volcanic forcing over the last millennium 14 July 2020

No consistent ENSO response to volcanic forcing over the last millennium

In a recent paper published in Science, authors analyze new paleoclimate data in the form of coral samples from the Tropical Pacific. These include a consistent proxy record for variables such as sea surface temperature.

New research examines changes in stratospheric circulation pattern over past four decades 23 June 2020

New research examines changes in stratospheric circulation pattern over past four decades

The study highlights scientists’ ability to indirectly measure large scale global processes through observation platforms that confirm models and shows how anthropogenic effects (e.g. greenhouse gases and ozone) interact to impact large scale global circulation systems.
