Comparison of the Atlantic meridional overturning circulation between 1960 and 2007 in six ocean reanalysis products 25 September 2015

Comparison of the Atlantic meridional overturning circulation between 1960 and 2007 in six ocean reanalysis products

A new CVP-supported study published in Climate Dynamics compares six ocean reanalyses produced under different conditions (forcings, models) to determine how they represented the variability characteristics and mean of the Atlantic Meridional Overturning Circulation .

El Niño–Southern Oscillation (ENSO) Sea Level Pressure Anomalies in the Western Pacific 17 September 2015

El Niño–Southern Oscillation (ENSO) Sea Level Pressure Anomalies in the Western Pacific

Research supported by NOAA CPO’s Climate Variability and Predictability (CVP) program and the Modeling, Analysis, Predictions and Projections (MAPP) program has been accepted for publication in the Journal of Climate.

Projections of tropical cyclones and rainfall in the African Sahel could be improved with better understanding and representation of African easterly waves in models 16 September 2015

Projections of tropical cyclones and rainfall in the African Sahel could be improved with better understanding and representation of African easterly waves in models

Accurately simulating AEWs is critical to predicting Atlantic tropical cyclones and hurricanes, but new research supported by the Climate Variability and Predictability program, and accepted for publication in the Journal of Climate, demonstrates several shortcomings in CMIP5 models preventing accurate representation of AEWs.

NOAA’s Climate Program Office awards $22.3 million to advance climate science 10 February 2015

NOAA’s Climate Program Office awards $22.3 million to advance climate science

NOAA’s Climate Program Office (CPO) has awarded more than $22.3 million to support 77 multi-year projects conducted by research partners.  With these new awards, CPO helps improve the breadth and scope of climate research, and offers opportunities for collaboration within and integration between programs. Potential research results will likely have impacts far beyond individual projects and funding programs.
