Improving Representation of Drought Over Agricultural Areas

Results show that incorporating observations improves the simulation of the drought category, detection of drought conditions, and reduces instances of drought false alarms.
Drought Task Force Provides Rapid Response to Worst U.S. Drought Since 2013 26 January 2021

Drought Task Force Provides Rapid Response to Worst U.S. Drought Since 2013

The Drought Task Force’s rapid response will help us understand the ongoing drought’s causes, how our science is helping us understand the drought, to what extent climate change is playing a role, and how the event may evolve.

Paleo-Climate Datasets Reveal a Tropically-driven Global Teleconnection 19 January 2021

Paleo-Climate Datasets Reveal a Tropically-driven Global Teleconnection

Climate Variability & Predictability (CVP) and Modeling, Analysis, Predictions and Projections (MAPP) funded a recent study which proposes a newly-named global teleconnection linking cooling temperature trends over Eurasia and warming trends in the Arctic to variability in low-frequency tropical sea surface temperatures.
