NOAA’s Climate Program Office awards $22.3 million to advance climate science 10 February 2015

NOAA’s Climate Program Office awards $22.3 million to advance climate science

NOAA’s Climate Program Office (CPO) has awarded more than $22.3 million to support 77 multi-year projects conducted by research partners.  With these new awards, CPO helps improve the breadth and scope of climate research, and offers opportunities for collaboration within and integration between programs. Potential research results will likely have impacts far beyond individual projects and funding programs.

Madden-Julian Oscillation - Bridging  Weather and Climate 22 January 2014

Madden-Julian Oscillation - Bridging Weather and Climate

A paper funded by the Climate Program Office’s MAPP and ESS programs was published in the Bulletin of the American Meteorological Society (BAMS) in December.  The paper - titled "Madden-Julian Oscillation - Bridging  Weather and Climate" - shows that the MJO, which sits in a time frame between weather (less than 10 days) and climate (90 days and longer), can affect both weather and climate and plays a critical role in connecting or bridging the two.
