The Chemistry of Atmospheric Brown Carbon

A team of scientists partially funded by CPO's Atmospheric Chemistry, Carbon Cycle, & Climate (AC4) program published a Chemical Reviews article on the chemistry of atmospheric "brown carbon,"-- the atmospheric aerosol contributing to the brown color of smoggy air.

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.

Agricultural Green Revolution as a driver of increasing atmospheric CO2 seasonal amplitude

A project supported by CPO's Modeling, Analysis, Prediction, and Projections (MAPP) and  Atmospheric Chemistry, Carbon Cycle, and Climate (AC4) programs has had new research published in Nature.  The paper, "Agricultural Green Revolution as a driver of increasing atmospheric CO2 seasonal amplitude," was published in the journal's Nov. 19, 2014 issue.
New study explains wintertime ozone pollution in Utah oil and gas fields 3 October 2014

New study explains wintertime ozone pollution in Utah oil and gas fields

Chemicals released into the air by oil and gas exploration, extraction and related activities can spark reactions that lead to high levels of ozone in wintertime, high enough to exceed federal health standards, according to new NOAA-led research, published online Nature. CPO's AC-4 program supported this research.

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.
