Semi-arid regions may be key to understanding and predicting variations in the land CO2 sink 10 June 2015

Semi-arid regions may be key to understanding and predicting variations in the land CO2 sink

Terrestrial ecosystems pull about one-fourth of anthropogenic CO2 emissions out of the atmosphere per year, serving as a sink for CO2 since industrialization.

Researchers offer new insights into predicting future droughts in California

This NOAA Drought Task Force/NIDIS report details the results of an extensive multi-research-group analysis of the causes and predictability of the drought. The report finds that the exceedingly warm and dry conditions that caused the drought were due to a high pressure ridge off the west coast of the United States influenced heavily by anomalous sea surface temperatures. These influences are attributed to natural variability.

ABOUT OUR ORGANIZATION

Americans’ health, security and economic wellbeing are tied to climate and weather. Every day, we see communities grappling with environmental challenges due to unusual or extreme events related to climate and weather. In 2011, the United States experienced a record high number (14) of climate- and weather-related disasters where overall costs reached or exceeded $1 billion. Combined, these events claimed 670 lives, caused more than 6,000 injuries, and cost $55 billion in damages. Businesses, policy leaders, resource managers and citizens are increasingly asking for information to help them address such challenges.
