Research led by MAPP supported PI, Dr. Suzana Camargo, examined the impact of volcanic aerosols on recent global tropical cyclone activity in observations, reanalysis, and models (including the CMIP5 multi-model).
With funding from NOAA’s Climate Program Office, Rood and colleagues, including lead developer Ben Koziol, a CIRES researcher in NOAA’s Earth System Research Laboratory, have built an open source Python package, OpenClimateGIS, that aids users in the interpretation of climate data.
Researched funded by CPO’s MAPP program was published in Nature Climate Change on Feb. 23. Scientists at NOAA’s Atlantic Oceanographic and Meteorological Laboratory (AOML) led a new study to be published in Nature Climate Change, identifies a path forward to reduce or eliminate global sea surface temperature biases in the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change’s (IPCC) Assessments resulting in greater confidence in climate model projections.
The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) 5th Assessment Report on “The Physical Science Basis” of climate change has been completed and will appear online on Sept. 30, 2013. This report represents a milestone in the understanding of the Earth system and climate science. Scientific research funded by NOAA’s Climate Program Office (CPO) is foundational to advancing IPCC reports. CPO supports climate science research reflected in the IPCC’s report through its Climate Observations and Monitoring (COM); Earth System Science (ESS); and Modeling, Analysis, Predictions, and Projections (MAPP) programs.
