Identifying rapidly evolving and severe “flash drought’ conditions is especially useful for mitigating crop losses, monitor vegetation health, and provide crucial information for increased fire risk.
Variability and change in the ocean sink of anthropogenic carbon dioxide (CO2) have implications for future climate and ocean acidification.
Three papers funded by CPO's Climate Observation Division (a Review Article, Perspective, and Correspondence) appeared in the February Issue of Nature Climate Change addressing monitoring and understanding the Earth's Energy Imbalance.
NOAA’s Modeling, Analysis, Predictions, and Projections (MAPP) program has competitively chosen nine new one-year projects involving $545,427 in grants and $82,000 in other awards (for a total of $627,427) to evaluate and develop new applications for the North American Multi-Model Ensemble System (NMME), a state-of-the-art multi-model seasonal prediction system currently in the process of transitioning to National Weather Service operations.
NOAA’s Modeling, Analysis, Predictions, and Projections (MAPP) program competitively selected a new 3-year project involving $2.8 million in grants and $249,728 in other awards (for a total of $3 million) to help advance common software modeling and data infrastructure for NOAA's global models for weather and climate prediction, ultimately resulting in more efficient model development and use of model data.
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.
