A new study supported by a COM-CVP-GOMO partnership uses new ocean observing systems to uncover previously unknown phytoplankton blooms occurring beneath Southern Ocean sea ice cover.
A report has just been published detailing the accomplishments of the NOAA Sea Ice Modeling Collaboration Workshop, held at the University of Colorado, Boulder in April 2023. The Sea Ice Modeling Collaboration Team organized this workshop, a group dedicated to advancing cross-OAR and NOAA-wide sea ice modeling activities that is sponsored by CPO’s Climate Observations and Monitoring (COM) and Climate
This workshop, organized by the COM- and CVP-supported Sea Ice Modeling Collaboration Team, will work toward collaboration in model development, evaluation, applications, and advancements.
Improved Predictability of Sea Ice Break-Up and Freeze-Up for Arctic Coastal Communities and Ecosystems
A new COM-funded Arctic sea ice study improves predictions of sea ice freeze-up and break-up in coastal regions by identifying local indicators.
Understanding natural climate variability can improve predictions of sea-ice coverage at short and long term scales, study says
A CPO-funded study published on Nature Climate Change demonstrates how understanding natural climate variability can improve predictions of sea-ice coverage at short and long term scales.
A CPO-funded study in the Journal of Climate documents research on sea ice to understand essential processes in the climate system and other ecological systems.
A study funded by the CPO’s Climate Observation Division confirms previous research suggesting spring clouds may be influencing arctic sea ice concentrations in the fall.
“There is little doubt that we will see a decline in Arctic sea ice cover in this century in response to anthropogenic warming, and yet internal climate variations and other external forcings could generate considerable spread in Arctic sea ice trends on decadal timescales,” begins a newly released article by Yeager et al., in Geophysical Research Letters.
