Expected Trends and Surprises for Study on Seasonal Extreme Temperature Events Across North America

Extreme warm events are increasing in frequency, duration, and extent across North America while extreme cold events are decreasing, though COM-funded researchers find some surprising exceptions.

Chill Out: Cooling of Coastal Surface Waters Impacts Hurricane Intensity

Tropical storms like 2011’s Hurricane Irene experienced cooling in the coastal surface waters ahead of the eye of the hurricane, which reduced storm intensity, according to a CPO-funded study by Rutgers’ University Professor Scott Glenn and partners published in Nature Communications.

How El Nino “flavors” affect the Mississippi River River Basin

A new paper from scientists in CPO’s Modeling, Analysis, Predictions, and Projections (MAPP) program titled “Asymmetric Responses of Land Hydroclimatology to Two Types of El Nino in the Mississippi River River Basin,” was accepted into the Geophysical Research Letters journal on Jan. 3.

Workshop to help crop and range managers weather extreme and extended drought

A one-day workshop for Southern Plains farmers & ranchers in Garden City, KS, to discuss drought planning. The purpose of this workshop is to discuss planning for long-term and extreme drought in their operations.  The workshop will be at the 4-H building on the county fairgrounds. Registration and coffee begin at 8 a.m. It is a joint effort by the National Drought Mitigation Center at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, Finney County Extension-KSU, and NOAA’s National Integrated Drought Information System (NIDIS).

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.
