CPO’s Climate Variability and Predictability (CVP) program is announcing four new two-year projects originally funded in Fiscal Year 2023 (FY23) that aim to identify and understand key land-atmosphere processes that influence coupled-model precipitation biases in the Continental United States (CONUS). The competitively selected projects total $1.8 million in grants1. The Earth system has many interacting […]
A new tropical cyclone research study funded by CVP provides a new characterization of how storms transform as they move away from the equator.
NOAA Climate Program Office’s ERB, AC4 and CVP Programs award $3 million for new applications of satellite data to aerosol research
CPO’s ERB, AC4, and CVP programs, in partnership with NESDIS STAR, are announcing four new 3-year projects originally funded in Fiscal Year 2023.
15 CPO staff, research team members, interns, and a Knauss Fellow will participate in the American Geophysical Union’s Fall 2023 Meeting.
A new CVP-supported study develops a highly skilled biogeochemical ocean forecast up to ten months, demonstrating an improved modeling method for short-term changes to inform marine fisheries managers.
Distinguishing Between the Central and Eastern Atlantic Niño, A New Way to Think About Tropical Climate
A new CVP-supported study on tropical climate proposes that the Atlantic Niño phenomenon is made up of two parts, which have distinct impacts on climate and are changing differently over time.
A report has just been published detailing the accomplishments of the NOAA Sea Ice Modeling Collaboration Workshop, held at the University of Colorado, Boulder in April 2023. The Sea Ice Modeling Collaboration Team organized this workshop, a group dedicated to advancing cross-OAR and NOAA-wide sea ice modeling activities that is sponsored by CPO’s Climate Observations and Monitoring (COM) and Climate
It is well known that within the Maritime Continent, a meteorological term for the region between the Indian and Pacific Oceans, enhanced water mixing processes from tides cause colder sea surface temperatures. An important question is exactly how much this process contributes to broader ocean and climate conditions. A new study, supported by the Climate
A new CVP-funded study finds that data assimilation in tropical Pacific models can improve sea surface temperature, but may not benefit predictions of mixed layer depth, providing important context for the most accurate and efficient ways to produce forecasts in this region.
CVP-funded study describes newly discovered details on the causes of steady sea level rise on the U.S. east coast over recent decades.
