NOAA’s Climate Variability and Predictability (CVP) program competitively funded 11 new three-year projects totaling $4.6 million in grants and $1.2 million in other awards to support 38 researchers, postdocs, and students at 15 institutions.

Monitoring the Global Ocean through Ocean Climate Indicators 7 October 2015

Monitoring the Global Ocean through Ocean Climate Indicators

NOAA’s Climate Monitoring program competitively selected two new three-year projects totaling $855,734 in grants to produce observation-based global and (preferably) regional indices that facilitate monitoring the status, trends, extremes, and variability of ocean physical properties for the benefit of research, predictions, and decision makers. The two new projects join 13 multi-year projects totaling $2.2 million, that were funded last year in the same competition.

Advancing the North American Multi­-Model Ensemble Seasonal Prediction Capability 7 October 2015

Advancing the North American Multi­-Model Ensemble Seasonal Prediction Capability

NOAA’s Modeling, Analysis, Predictions, and Projections (MAPP) program has competitively chosen nine new one-year projects involving $545,427 in grants and $82,000 in other awards (for a total of $627,427) to evaluate and develop new applications for the North American Multi-Model Ensemble System (NMME), a state-of-the-art multi­-model seasonal prediction system currently in the process of transitioning to National Weather Service operations.

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.
