A recent study supported by AC4 uses modeling methods to improve long-term observational records, confirming an understood trend of decreasing ozone in the lower stratosphere and challenging previous work showing a positive trend in the upper stratosphere.
CHEESEHEAD19 Field Campaign produces useful criteria for using a variety of ground-based remote sensing instruments used to measure planetary boundary layer height.
In celebration of Women’s History Month, this article continues a series of interviews with NOAA Research employees and scientists. Some of Lei Hu’s previous work was funded by NOAA Climate Program Office.
Fair-weather cumulus clouds are found to stimulate more surface energy exchange over a forested landscape
By Xinyi Zeng, Science Communications Specialist New research in the Journal of Geophysical Research: Atmospheres found that low, fair-weather, cumulus clouds stimulate stronger surface energy exchange in comparison to other sky conditions over a forested landscape in northern Wisconsin. CIRES scientist Joseph Sedlar led the research along with a team of scientists from CIRES, NOAA

A study funded by the CPO’s Climate Observation Division confirms previous research suggesting spring clouds may be influencing arctic sea ice concentrations in the fall.
New research in Geophysical Research Letters and partially funded by CPO’s AC4 program found that the Bakken Formation, an oil and gas field in North Dakota and Montana, is responsible for roughly 2 percent of the globe’s ethane–about 250,000 tons per year.
Given the very strong El Niño event and its likely persistence for several more months, the Western Water Assessment, a NOAA RISA program at CU Boulder, hosted a panel of local experts from NOAA ESRL and the National Weather Service on Friday, Oct. 23. They also released a 2-pager highlighting ENSO’s prospective impacts in Colorado.
