Understanding Local & Remote Forcing of Interannual Variability of Equatorial Eastern Indian Ocean Upwelling

A recently published article in the Journal of Physical Oceanography written by Chen et al., and supported by CPO’s Climate Variability and Predictability (CVP) program, explores remote and local forcing that drives the interannual variability of EIO upwelling by analyzing observations and performing experiments in the HYCOM ocean model.

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.
