Researchers funded by CPO’s Climate Observations and Modeling (COM) program use a new method of climate index development to demonstrate the creation of directional wind indices and their potential application.
New research shows how climate change-induced increases in tropical cyclone activity leads to more phytoplankton blooms.
A recently published study uses both satellite and in situ observations of atmospheric methane to model methane sources, removals, and trends from 2010 to 2017.
Dr. Camargo journeyed from Brazil's most populous city to New York in 1999. She came with little more than a passion for physics and mathematics, as well as a strong drive to leave a mark on the world. Now, an accredited climate researcher and scientist with the Lamont Doherty Earth Observatory at Columbia University, Camargo shares her story. Camargo documents her upbringing, her climate research, diversity in the climate science field and more in a profile-feature story for Women's History Month.
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...
