Tropical cyclones are one of the most intense storm systems on earth and nearly one-third of global tropical cyclones form in the western North Pacific. So why was the 2020 season quiet? A new MAPP-funded study helps answer this question.
The new white paper describing the research challenge identifies opportunities for increased understanding of U.S. coasts in the face of extreme weather and climate change.
NOAA is soliciting proposals to increase our understanding of the combined impacts of multiple stressors, including harmful algal blooms, deoxygenation, ocean acidification, and increasing temperatures, on the function and health of marine ecosystems within the context of climate change. NOAA expects to fund 1–2 projects for up to four years in duration, with an approximate annual budget of $1 million, not to exceed $4 million in total.
The combined effects of sea-level rise and natural fluctuations in tidal range are anticipated to cause tipping points in the frequency of high-tide flooding. These tipping points can produce acute impacts in underserved communities, who are often unprepared to deal with the consequences.
New research tackles the uncertainty in the latest generation of global climate models' (CMIP6) projections of the first ice-free Arctic summer.
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.
