New research suggests the abrupt deep convection of the 2008 winter in the Labrador Sea is associated with unusual atmospheric conditions in the western North Atlantic and large-scale cooling in North America.
Newly published research in Geophysical Research Letters by Boucharel et al.–and supported by CPO’s Climate Variability and Predictability program–seeks to understand these modes of expression, or “flavors,” of El Niño, and their influence on tropical cyclones.
Earlier this month, NOAA Climate.gov and the Climate Program Office Communications and Education (CommEd) team unveiled a new webpage to track El Niño and La Niña events: www.climate.gov/ENSO.
Two new MAPP-funded studies provide new insight into drought understanding and prediction in the Central U.S.
New research funded by CPO’s MAPP Program focuses on drought in the central U.S./Great Plains region and evaluates why summer droughts occur in the Southern Great Plains during some La Niña years but not in others, and how several drought indicators may promote drought preparedness during future flash drought (droughts that intensify rapidly) events.
What is responsible for the strong observed asymmetry in teleconnections between El Nino and La Nina?
Research funded by CPO’s Modeling, Analysis, Prediction, and Projections (MAPP) program focusing on observed asymmetry in teleconnections between El Nino and La Nina was published in the February issue of Geophysical Research Letters.
