NOAA’s Climate Program Office released its FY15 Annual Report on March 11, 2016. The report gives an overview of CPO’s achievements in FY15 and highlights the great work done by the Office’s Divisions and Programs to advance scientific understanding of climate and improve society’s ability to plan and respond to a changing climate.
NOAA’s Modeling, Analysis, Predictions, and Projections (MAPP) program has competitively chosen nine new one-year projects involving $545,427 in grants and $82,000 in other awards (for a total of $627,427) to evaluate and develop new applications for the North American Multi-Model Ensemble System (NMME), a state-of-the-art multi-model seasonal prediction system currently in the process of transitioning to National Weather Service operations.
NOAA’s Modeling, Analysis, Predictions, and Projections (MAPP) program has competitively chosen nine new three-year projects involving $3.9 million in grants and $900 thousand in other awards for a total of $4.8 million to develop process-oriented metrics for climate and Earth system model development.
NOAA’s Modeling, Analysis, Predictions, and Projections (MAPP) program competitively selected a new 3-year project involving $2.8 million in grants and $249,728 in other awards (for a total of $3 million) to help advance common software modeling and data infrastructure for NOAA’s global models for weather and climate prediction, ultimately resulting in more efficient model development and use of model data.
NOAA’s Coastal and Ocean Climate Application Program (COCA) competitively selected four two-year projects totaling $1,102,594 in grants for the FY2015 Supporting Resilient Coastal Communities and Ecosystems in a Changing Climate: Understanding Climate-related Human Health Risks within the Coastal Environment competition.
NOAA’s Regional Integrated Sciences and Assessments (RISA) Program is announcing five new five-year awards totaling $19 million to research institutions from Honolulu to New York City to improve the ability of those seeking to prepare for and adapt to climate variability and change.
