Long-term warming and environmental change trends persist in the Arctic in 2013

NOAA's annual Arctic Report Card, introduced in 2006 by the NOAA Climate Program Office, found that cooler temperatures in the summer of 2013 across the central Arctic Ocean, Greenland and northern Canada moderated the record sea ice loss and extensive melting that the surface of the Greenland ice sheet experienced last year.

NOAA-funded research could help early prediction of extreme heat waves 5 November 2013

NOAA-funded research could help early prediction of extreme heat waves

New research partially funded by NOAA’s Modeling, Analysis, Predictions, and Projections (MAPP) program may enable longer-term forecasts of U.S. heat waves. Scientists from the National Center for Atmospheric Research have fingerprinted a distinctive atmospheric wave pattern high above the Northern Hemisphere that can foreshadow the emergence of summertime heat waves in the United States more than two weeks in advance.
