New findings suggest ice sheets, such as the Greenland Ice Sheet and Antarctica, could be at risk of collapsing and raising sea levels more than most models currently predict based on global warming alone.
This study highlights modeling techniques that may enhance predictability of decadal climate change and understanding of North American drought.
A CPO-funded study in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences suggests intensifying precipitation may change with atmospheric temperature changes.
A CPO-supported study documents continued progress in understanding why the Madden-Julian Oscillation often weakens over the Indo-Pacific Maritime Continent.
A new CPO-supported study demonstrates the risk of inundation in coastal areas such as New York City.
