CPO scientists help Palauan students explore their connection to the ocean

During first week of May, scientists from 12 different countries met for the first Data Buoy Cooperation Panel (DBCP) Pacific Islands Training Workshop on Ocean Observations and Data Applications in Koror, Palau. While they were there, they had an opportunity to meet with Palauan students and explore how the ocean is deeply embedded in their heritage.

An Analysis of the Temporal Evolution of ENSO Prediction Skill in the Context of the Equatorial Pacific Ocean Observing System

An analysis in the Monthly Weather Review supported by CPO’s Climate Observation Division found that sub-surface ocean observations in the equatorial tropical Pacific Ocean dramatically increased after 1990s due to the completion of the TAO moored array and a steady increase in Argo floats.

New Satellite Cloud Datasets Produced

With partial funding from CPO’s Climate Monitoring Division,  Researchers at the Scripps Institute of Oceanography have published new research applying important “corrections” to two widely-used, long term satellite cloud data records (The International Satellite Cloud Climatology Project (ISCCP) dataset and the Pathfinder Atmospheres–Extended (PATMOS-x) dataset).

New research shows ocean warming poses “immediate threat” to keystone reef-building coral in the Caribbean

New research published in The Proceeding of the Royal Society – Biological Sciences provides new insights on the threat  ocean warming poses on coral growth in Mesoamerican barrier reefs.  The research, partially funded by CPO’s Climate Monitoring program, used laboratory experiments to examine the adverse effects of ocean warming and acidification, and showed that the warming predicted by the IPCC for the end of the 21st century produced a five-fold decrease in coral calcification – the process by which corals produce calcium carbonate (CaCO3) and build reefs.
