NIDIS-Funded Study Evaluates In Situ Soil Moisture Observations in Contiguous United States

 Due to its significance, accurate soil moisture information is critical for subseasonal-to-seasonal climate prediction as well as forecasting extreme events at those timescales. 

 

New Research Methodology To Enhance Drought Monitoring 25 September 2020

New Research Methodology To Enhance Drought Monitoring

In order to improve model predictions, an accurate characterization of the uncertainty in the model state, i.e soil moisture, is critical. With droughts becoming more severe and frequent, it’s imperative for researchers to study and improve drought monitoring.

The U.S. drought vulnerability rankings are in: How does your state compare? 17 September 2020

The U.S. drought vulnerability rankings are in: How does your state compare?

According to a new NOAA-funded assessment, what makes a state vulnerable is driven by more than just a lack of rain: it’s a combination of how susceptible a state is to drought and whether it’s prepared for impacts. And the most and least vulnerable states could surprise you.

What A Warming Ocean Could Mean For Coastal Cities 28 August 2020

What A Warming Ocean Could Mean For Coastal Cities

Coastal sea levels are contributing to coastal flooding and erosion as global sea levels rise, partly due to the thermal expansion of seawater, which accelerates with increasing temperatures. Climate model simulations with increasing greenhouse gas emissions show that future sea-level variability will increase in many regions around the world
