ESSM supports effort to address climate projection uncertainties through large ensembles 7 April 2020

ESSM supports effort to address climate projection uncertainties through large ensembles

Using climate projections to assess climate change risks remains challenging, in part due to the large associated uncertainties, such as those for extreme events.

Different forces drive storm-induced sea level spikes on U.S. East, Gulf coasts, says CPO-funded study 13 February 2020

Different forces drive storm-induced sea level spikes on U.S. East, Gulf coasts, says CPO-funded study

Using a new powerful NOAA global climate model, NOAA and partner researchers show that big spikes in daily coastal sea levels will increase in the future from the Gulf Coast to the Atlantic coast as warming progresses, but will be driven by differing forces in these two regions.

Bridging the Weather-Climate Prediction Skill Gap with a Multi-Model Experiment 18 December 2019

Bridging the Weather-Climate Prediction Skill Gap with a Multi-Model Experiment

Researchers have for years been working to tackle the subseasonal to seasonal (S2S) prediction problem to improve forecasts. The Subseasonal Experiment, SubX, is an interagency research-to-operations project designed to help tackle this problem. The results of the project were recently published in BAMS.
