A CPO-funded study published on Nature Climate Change demonstrates how understanding natural climate variability can improve predictions of sea-ice coverage at short and long term scales.
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.
The Climate Program Office (CPO) manages competitive research programs in which NOAA funds high-priority climate science, assessments, decision support research, outreach, education, and capacity-building activities designed to advance our understanding of Earth’s climate system, and to foster the application of this knowledge in risk management and adaptation efforts. CPO-supported research is conducted in regions across the United States, at national and international scales, and globally. Learn more...
