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.

Distinguishing Between Low and High Climate Sensitivity in Climate Models 16 February 2021

Distinguishing Between Low and High Climate Sensitivity in Climate Models

New research distinguishes between climate models with low and high climate sensitivity due to aerosol-cloud interactions, helping climate scientists to better understand and reduce uncertainty in future climate projections. 

Emissions of a Banned Ozone-depleting Gas are Back on the Decline 9 February 2021

Emissions of a Banned Ozone-depleting Gas are Back on the Decline

Discovery in 2018 posed first real test of the Montreal Protocol

New analyses of global air measurements show that five years after an unexpected spike in emissions of the banned ozone-depleting chemical chlorofluorocarbon CFC-11, they dropped sharply between 2018 and 2019.
Former NOAA Climate & Global Change Postdoc Named NASA's First Senior Climate Adviser 9 February 2021

Former NOAA Climate & Global Change Postdoc Named NASA's First Senior Climate Adviser

The NOAA Climate and Global Change (C&GC) Postdoc Fellowship Program helps create and train the future leading researchers needed for climate studies, to serve the nation and support NOAA’s mission. Gavin Schmidt, G&GC Class 6 and Director of NASA’s Goddard Institute for Space Studies in New York, will serve in the role in an acting capacity until a permanent appointment is made.

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.
