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.
Mississippi River Basin Flooding Predictability Improved by Linking Patterns in the tropical Pacific and North Atlantic
Improvements in flood predictability along the Mississippi River by a COM-funded study use a high-quality dataset spanning the past 1,000 years to link tropical Pacific and North Atlantic patterns to regional hydroclimate.
COM-funded research utilizes a new data assimilation tool to explore the relationship between ENSO dynamics and volcanic events
This study uses a novel approach to further explore the dynamic impacts of volcanism on ENSO.
