Land Breeze Leads to Nighttime Rainfall Events Off the West Coast of Sumatra

A new study investigates the role of land breeze and gravity waves in nighttime rainfall migration off the west coast of Sumatra, with a specific focus on the properties (frequency, speed, intraseasonal and seasonal variations) of this offshore rainfall.

Research Highlights Role of Coastal Ocean in Influencing Atmospheric River Intensity 24 February 2021

Research Highlights Role of Coastal Ocean in Influencing Atmospheric River Intensity

NOAA buoy observations collectively enabled a systemic synoptic-scale analysis of a 39-year record of atmospheric rivers, offering a unique view of coastal air-sea processes at the time of atmospheric river landfall.

New Study Reveals Interdecadal Intensity Peaks in the Madden–Julian Oscillation 9 February 2021

New Study Reveals Interdecadal Intensity Peaks in the Madden–Julian Oscillation

New research uses reanalysis datasets (including one from NOAA) to show how the Madden-Julian oscillation (MJO) exhibits 12- to 20-year periods around peak intensity and theorizes on the physical mechanisms responsible. 

Paleo-Climate Datasets Reveal a Tropically-driven Global Teleconnection 19 January 2021

Paleo-Climate Datasets Reveal a Tropically-driven Global Teleconnection

Climate Variability & Predictability (CVP) and Modeling, Analysis, Predictions and Projections (MAPP) funded a recent study which proposes a newly-named global teleconnection linking cooling temperature trends over Eurasia and warming trends in the Arctic to variability in low-frequency tropical sea surface temperatures.

Investigating the Complex Science of Transport in Large-scale Ocean Currents 19 January 2021

Investigating the Complex Science of Transport in Large-scale Ocean Currents

In representing the transport of ocean properties such as heat or salinity, the smaller, more complex details may matter significantly according to researchers funded in part by the Climate Variability & Predictability (CVP) program.
