New MAPP Program-funded research helps shed light on this debate.
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.
Following the strong El Niño in 2015, Hawaii experienced record breaking high sea levels in 2017. Impacts of high sea levels include beach erosion, inundation, and failed drainage infrastructure due to saltwater blockage. The processes associated with the Hawaii sea level rise after an El Niño event have so far remained unknown.
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.
A research team funded in part by CPO's MAPP and CVP Programs investigate the effect of global warming on the MJO.
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.
