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.

CPO invests $2.9 million to support advances in climate monitoring

NOAA’s Climate Program Office’s (CPO) Climate Observation and Monitoring Division has awarded over $2.9 million this year to support 10 new multi-year projects to develop innovative strategies and new information products to help better detect, monitor, and understand  climate variability and change.


Review of wave intensity over 60 years shows strong links to multi-decadal cycles 19 February 2014

Review of wave intensity over 60 years shows strong links to multi-decadal cycles

A study partially funded by COD and RISA provides a new perspective on how the intensity of waves across the north Pacific Ocean has varied over the last half-century.
A milestone in advancing the physical science basis of climate variability and change 27 September 2013

A milestone in advancing the physical science basis of climate variability and change

The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) 5th Assessment Report on “The Physical Science Basis” of climate change has been completed and will appear online on Sept. 30, 2013. This report represents a milestone in the understanding of the Earth system and climate science. Scientific research funded by NOAA’s Climate Program Office (CPO) is foundational to advancing IPCC reports. CPO supports climate science research reflected in the IPCC’s report through its Climate Observations and Monitoring (COM); Earth System Science (ESS); and Modeling, Analysis, Predictions, and Projections (MAPP) programs.

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.
