Spring ENSO Variations and North Atlantic SSTs Could Help Long-Range Prediction of U.S. Tornado Outbreaks 11 April 2016

Spring ENSO Variations and North Atlantic SSTs Could Help Long-Range Prediction of U.S. Tornado Outbreaks

In a recent paper published in Environmental Research Letters, scientists with NOAA and the University of Miami have identified how patterns in the spring phases of the El Niño-Southern Oscillation (ENSO), coupled with variability in North Atlantic sea surface temperatures, could help predict U.S. regional tornado outbreaks.

Global Sea Level Rise in the 20th Century was faster than the past 27 centuries, says a joint report 11 March 2016

Global Sea Level Rise in the 20th Century was faster than the past 27 centuries, says a joint report

The 20th century saw the fastest rise in global sea level (GSL) in 27 centuries, according to a new report supported by NOAA. Partners from Rutgers' University, Tufts' University, NOAA, and other researchers foreign and domestic utilized new statistical modeling techniques that permitted observation of GSL rise and projections for GSL in the 21st century. Previous statistical modeling could only focus at the regional and local levels.

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.
