Sea level change and subsidence in the Delaware Estuary during the last 2200 years 5 October 2015

Sea level change and subsidence in the Delaware Estuary during the last 2200 years

New research by Daria Nikitina et al. and supported by CPO's CVP program was published in the journal Estuarine, Coastal and Shelf Science. The research examined relative sea level (RSL) rise in the Delaware Bay in a reconstruction spanning 200 BCE to 1800 CE.

Comparison of the Atlantic meridional overturning circulation between 1960 and 2007 in six ocean reanalysis products 25 September 2015

Comparison of the Atlantic meridional overturning circulation between 1960 and 2007 in six ocean reanalysis products

A new CVP-supported study published in Climate Dynamics compares six ocean reanalyses produced under different conditions (forcings, models) to determine how they represented the variability characteristics and mean of the Atlantic Meridional Overturning Circulation .

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.
