An upcoming NCA rollout event in Hawaii is being led by the Pacific RISA and the Pacific Islands LCC.
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.
With funding from CPO’s Atmospheric Chemistry, Carbon Cycle, & Climate (AC4), researchers at the U.S. Department of Energy’s Pacific Northwest National Laboratory sought to understand why some marine stratocumulus clouds form “open cells” while others form “closed cells,” even when the background whether conditions are similar.
On Sept. 17 from 3 – 4:30 p.m., scientists from the Pacific Regional Integrated Sciences and Assessments (RISA) program will present at a Congressional briefing titled Climate Change Impacts in the Pacific: Implications for U.S. Environmental and Human Security.
