Researchers funded in part by the Climate Observations and Monitoring program, in collaboration with the Geophysical Fluid Dynamics Laboratory (GFDL), a NOAA facility at Princeton University, have published a new study that examines how projected climate features (global temperature, precipitation, and tropical cyclone activity) respond to increased CO2 conditions at varying resolution (25km vs. 50km vs. 200km). The article, “Tropical cyclone sensitivities to CO2 doubling: roles of atmospheric resolution, synoptic variability and background climate changes,” was published in the journal Climate Dynamics on August 13, 2019.
Marine heatwaves, like the one that hit the U.S. west coast in 2014, can have devastating impacts on the environment and economy.
Supported by CPO’s COM Program, scientists used this dataset for the recent 2018 State of the Climate report.
A research team funded in part by the Climate Program Office’s Climate Observations and Monitoring Program, in collaboration with the Atlantic Oceanographic and Meteorological Laboratory’s Hurricane Research Division, has published a new paper describing the circulation changes that occur when hurricanes strengthen. The paper, published online July 17, 2019 in Monthly Weather Review, is entitled “Observed Kinematic and Thermodynamic Structure in the Hurricane Boundary Layer during Intensity Change.”
The group is made up of 10 research teams that started projects in FY18 with a focus on the interaction of biogenic volatile organic compounds and reactive nitrogen.
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.
