For FY2023, the NOAA Adaptation Sciences program is soliciting proposals for interdisciplinary adaptation research activities to identify and better understand evolving climate-related risks, vulnerabilities, and adaptive capacity, and to foster the integration of this knowledge into adaptation and resilience planning for islands in the Caribbean and Pacific.
Eight new postdoctoral fellows are commencing cutting-edge research projects that will contribute innovative climate science to the research community as well as NOAA’s mission.
These fellows are the new 2022-2024 class of NOAA Climate and Global Change (C&GC) Postdoctoral Fellows, supported by NOAA Climate Program Office (CPO) and selected by the University Corporation for Atmospheric Research (UCAR).
The pandemic presented a unique opportunity to study the atmosphere’s response to widespread and sudden emission reductions, documented in a new publication in Environmental Research Letters.
A new study, part of NOAA's Drought Task Force IV research, shows the leading cause of the rapid increase of wildfires over the western U.S. is the rapid increase of surface air vapor pressure deficit.
Several new projects—including those focused on island resilience and coastal blue carbon—were highlighted during events hosted by the U.S. Center.
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...
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.
