A new indicator that characterizes heat waves in the United States shows staggering changes in this phenomenon over the past few decades. Many cities in the U.S. are now experiencing 5-10 more heat waves per year than they did in the 1960s
New research results from a project led by Hyemi Kim, a Stony Brook University scientist co-funded by NOAA Research’s Modeling, Analysis, Predictions and Projections (MAPP) Program, analyzes improvements in MJO prediction over the past decade.
New research by Michael Tippett, a Columbia University scientist, explores how the MJO affects tornado activity in the U.S. His findings uncover strengths and areas for improvement that can be used to paint a clearer picture of the MJO and U.S. tornado connection.
An upcoming agency-wide General Modeling Meeting and Fair serves as an important milestone in bringing together the modeling community to build on NOAA's recent efforts to improve its models of our changing environment.
