Improving extreme rainfall predictions: the limits of high-resolution climate models

The Climate Program Office supported a new study published in Earth’s Future that advances efforts to improve projections of how extreme rainfall will increase as global temperatures rise. Extreme rainfall events have significant environmental and societal impacts such as floods or water shortages. The general circulation models scientists use to predict extreme rainfall trends typically […]

Drivers and improved predictability of sea level rise along the U.S. Southeast Coast

Climate modelers used the rapid acceleration of sea level rise along the U.S. Southeast Coast since 2010 as a case study to investigate drivers and predictability of sea level rise in the region. Findings suggest the rate of sea level rise along the U.S. southeastern seaboard is potentially predictable up to 5 years in advance.
