A CPO-funded study in the Journal of Climate documents research on sea ice to understand essential processes in the climate system and other ecological systems.
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.
An important pilot study will provide data for improving observations in the Tropical Pacific.
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.
