The webinar series runs from September 22 to November 10, and will highlight recent results from CVP-funded research projects.
Accurately simulating AEWs is critical to predicting Atlantic tropical cyclones and hurricanes, but new research supported by the Climate Variability and Predictability program, and accepted for publication in the Journal of Climate, demonstrates several shortcomings in CMIP5 models preventing accurate representation of AEWs.
Research funded by CPO’s Atmospheric Chemistry, Carbon Cycle, and Climate (AC4) program was published in Nature Geosciences. The article assesses the relationship between the organic carbon content of sea water and freshly emitted sea spray aerosol in the North Atlantic as well as the coastal waters of California.
NOAA sponsored the Tropical Pacific Observing System-2020 (or TPOS-2020) workshop Jan. 27-30 at Scripps Institution of Oceanography. CPO’s David Legler and Sidney Thurston joined more than 60 international scientists in discussions of the future observing needs and strategies for this important region of the world.
