Stochastic forcing of north tropical Atlantic sea surface temperatures by the NAO 3 March 2014

Stochastic forcing of north tropical Atlantic sea surface temperatures by the NAO

Research funded by CPO's Climate Variability and Predictability program has been accepted for publication into Geophysical Research Letters. The paper, titled: "Stochastic forcing of north tropical Atlantic sea surface temperatures by the North Atlantic Oscillation," showed that NAO-generated forcing of SST during boreal winter and spring is responsible for more than half the statistically unpredictable component of SST in the main development region for Atlantic hurricanes during the subsequent summer and fall.

ABOUT OUR ORGANIZATION

Americans’ health, security and economic wellbeing are tied to climate and weather. Every day, we see communities grappling with environmental challenges due to unusual or extreme events related to climate and weather. In 2017, the United States experienced a record-tying 16 climate- and weather-related disasters where overall costs reached or exceeded $1 billion. Combined, these events claimed 362 lives, and had significant economic effects on the areas impacted, costing more than $306 billion. Businesses, policy leaders, resource managers and citizens are increasingly asking for information to help them address such challenges.
