MAPP Webinar Series: Climate Extremes: Understanding and Predicting High-Impact Conditions

The NOAA CPO Modeling, Analysis, Prediction, and Projections (MAPP) and Earth System Science (ESS) programs will host a webinar on the topic of climate extremes and efforts to better understand and predict them on Tuesday, April 8. During this webinar, speakers will touch on tropical cyclones, tornadoes, and drought, focusing on improved scientific understanding of these phenomena and their variability in a climate context as well as efforts to better simulate and predict them on various time scales. This work is directly relevant to the NOAA Societal Challenge “Reducing the Nation’s Vulnerability to Extreme Weather and Climate.” The announcement is provided below; you are invited to remotely join the session.

CMIP5 model simulations on the impacts of the two types of El Nino on U.S. winter temps

A study funded by CPO’s Modeling, Analysis, Predictions, and Projections (MAPP) program, titled: “CMIP5 Model Simulations of the Impacts of the Two Types of El Nino on U.S. Winter Temperature,” was accepted for publication by the Journal of Geophysical Research: Atmospheres.

A global perspective on CMIP5 climate model biases 3 March 2014

A global perspective on CMIP5 climate model biases

Researched funded by CPO’s MAPP program was published in Nature Climate Change on Feb. 23.  Scientists at NOAA’s Atlantic Oceanographic and Meteorological Laboratory (AOML) led a new study to be published in Nature Climate Change, identifies a path forward to reduce or eliminate global sea surface temperature biases in the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change’s (IPCC) Assessments resulting in greater confidence in climate model projections.

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.
