New research distinguishes between climate models with low and high climate sensitivity due to aerosol-cloud interactions, helping climate scientists to better understand and reduce uncertainty in future climate projections.
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.
Researchers funded by both the CPO Climate Variability & Predictability (CVP) program and the Modeling, Analysis, Predictions and Projections (MAPP) program rank the performance of over 30 CMIP5/6 climate models in reproducing observed atmosphere-sea ice relationships.
Building models that can appropriately capture plant-water interactions is critical in order to accurately simulate the onset and evolution of droughts and their cascading impacts throughout the Earth system.
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.
