These urban mitigation policies aimed at reducing CO2 emissions can worsen air quality and cause premature deaths if coemitted pollutants are not accounted for.
Research funded by CPO’s Climate Variability and Predictability (CVP) and published in the Journal of Climate found that increased carbon dioxide suppresses variability of the Atlantic Meridional Overturning Circulation (AMOC) in GFDL ESM2M simulation.
COD-funded researchers attempt to answer the question “Has global warming slowed the uptake of atmospheric carbon dioxide by the Southern Ocean?” in a new study in Science.
Work supported by CPO’s AC4 program found that the effects of melting permafrost in the Arctic could cost $43 trillion in extra economic damage by the end of the next century, on top of the more than the $300 trillion economic damage already predicted.
New CVP-funded research published in the Journal of Climate by Green and Schmittner simulates the consequences of a rapid collapse of the Pine Island Glacier (PIG) under pre-industrial and anthropogenically-forced conditions.
Seasonal variations in the aragonite saturation state in the upper open-ocean waters of the North Pacific Ocean
A paper supported by CPO’s Climate Observation Division (COD) was published in Geophysical Research Letters. The paper–Seasonal variations in the aragonite saturation state in the upper open-ocean waters of the North Pacific Ocean–was published online on June 16, 2015.
New research supported by CPO’s AC4 program has been published in Nature. “Climate Change and the Permafrost Carbon Feedback” focuses on the large quantities of organic carbon are stored in frozen soils within arctic and sub-arctic regions.
CarbonTracker, a CO2 measurement and modeling system developed by NOAA to keep track of sources (emissions to the atmosphere) and sinks (removal from the atmosphere) of carbon dioxide around the world, has come out with its latest update: CT2013B. This effort is supported by CPO’s AC4 Program.
CarbonTracker methane, an off-shoot of NOAA’s highly successful CarbonTracker, which was partially funded by CPO’s AC4 program, has earned peer-reviewed status with a recent paper in Atmospheric Chemistry and Physics.
