New temperature product improves global climate monitoring 17 October 2019

New temperature product improves global climate monitoring

Record cold and record warm temperatures across the planet can cause major and widespread impacts to life and property. But how frequent are these extreme temperature events? How do the frequencies of record warm events and record cold events compare, and have their relative frequencies changed over time? A new product funded by CPO's Climate Observations and Monitoring Program helps answers these questions.

MAPP-funded researchers find predictability of warm West Coast ocean temperatures not solely due to El Niño 2 October 2019

MAPP-funded researchers find predictability of warm West Coast ocean temperatures not solely due to El Niño

During the winter of 2014 and 2015, the US west coast (USWC) experienced record high temperatures extending from Baja California to the Gulf of Alaska. This record warming, as high as 3°C in some areas, greatly impacted the California Current System (CCS) and Gulf of Alaska marine ecosystems. However, tropical Pacific sea surface temperature anomalies were weak during 2014, calling into question their role in the USWC warming period.
