Thirty-two-year ocean–atmosphere coupled downscaling of global reanalysis over the Intra-American Seas

Research funded by CPO’s Modeling, Analysis, prediction, and Projections (MAPP) program was published online in Climate Dynamics on January 22, 2014.This study examines the oceanic and atmospheric variability over the Intra-American Seas (IAS) from a 32-year integration of a 15-km coupled regional climate model consisting of the Regional Spectral Model (RSM) for the atmosphere and the Regional Ocean Modeling System (ROMS) for the ocean.

Madden-Julian Oscillation – Bridging Weather and Climate

A paper funded by the Climate Program Office’s MAPP and ESS programs was published in the Bulletin of the American Meteorological Society (BAMS) in December.  The paper – titled “Madden-Julian Oscillation – Bridging  Weather and Climate” – shows that the MJO, which sits in a time frame between weather (less than 10 days) and climate (90 days and longer), can affect both weather and climate and plays a critical role in connecting or bridging the two.

MAPP Webinar Series: Modeling at Fine Scales: Research to Improve Regional and Local Climate Information

The NOAA CPO Modeling, Analysis, Prediction, and Projections program hosted a webinar on the topic of high-resolution modeling and information on Tuesday, December 17. Producing climate simulations at fine-scale requires significant advances in the understanding of climate processes and model capabilities. The demand for fine-scale information, which drives this research thrust, is great and growing. Many aspects of the applied climate sciences require high-resolution information for accurate planning. Research to develop such information strives to achieve both higher resolution and also more accurate models.
