The South Asian Summer Monsoon: What Our Climate Projections Tell Us

A paper just published in Science Advances, funded by the MAPP Program, identified a key climate pattern responsible, in part, for large uncertainties in projections of the South Asian summer monsoon (SASM). The SASM is the strongest component of the global monsoon system and contributes about 80% of South Asia’s annual rainfall and provides the water supply for more than a billion people.

A shift in ENSO is causing worse prediction skill

Despite major progress in monitoring and understanding the El Nino-Southern Oscillation (ENSO), an alternating climate pattern of abnormally warm and cool ocean temperatures across the tropical Pacific, scientists’ ability to predict it has not shown steady improvement over the past few decades. Helping to solve this mystery, a new review article funded by the MAPP Program found that a shift in ENSO properties around 1999/2000 may account for the lower prediction skill.

Has Arctic Warming Impacted Mid-latitude Atmospheric Circulation? 18 February 2020

Has Arctic Warming Impacted Mid-latitude Atmospheric Circulation?

New MAPP Program-funded research helps shed light on this debate.

Different forces drive storm-induced sea level spikes on U.S. East, Gulf coasts, says CPO-funded study 13 February 2020

Different forces drive storm-induced sea level spikes on U.S. East, Gulf coasts, says CPO-funded study

Using a new powerful NOAA global climate model, NOAA and partner researchers show that big spikes in daily coastal sea levels will increase in the future from the Gulf Coast to the Atlantic coast as warming progresses, but will be driven by differing forces in these two regions.
