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.

NOAA-funded research could help early prediction of extreme heat waves

New research partially funded by NOAA’s Modeling, Analysis, Predictions, and Projections (MAPP) program may enable longer-term forecasts of U.S. heat waves. Scientists from the National Center for Atmospheric Research have fingerprinted a distinctive atmospheric wave pattern high above the Northern Hemisphere that can foreshadow the emergence of summertime heat waves in the United States more than two weeks in advance.

MAPP-funded research aims to advance understanding and ability to predict year-to-year climate variations

NOAA’S Modeling, Analysis, Predictions, and Projections (MAPP) program awarded $8.6 million to support 10 new multi-year projects in which university partners and federal researchers will incorporate real-world observations into climate models and improve processes in those models to enhance the nation’s ability to visualize, understand, and predict year-to-year climate variations. Specifically, MAPP funding will support targeted improvements in the representation of clouds and sea ice, critical elements of the climate system, in climate models.
