The climatic consequences of a Pine Island Glacier collapse

New CVP-funded research published in the Journal of Climate by Green and Schmittner simulates the consequences of a rapid collapse of the Pine Island Glacier (PIG) under pre-industrial and anthropogenically-forced conditions.

Research supported by NOAA CPO’s Climate Variability and Predictability (CVP) program and the Modeling, Analysis, Predictions and Projections (MAPP) program has been accepted for publication in the Journal of Climate.

Projections of tropical cyclones and rainfall in the African Sahel could be improved with better understanding and representation of African easterly waves in models 16 September 2015

Projections of tropical cyclones and rainfall in the African Sahel could be improved with better understanding and representation of African easterly waves in models

Accurately simulating AEWs is critical to predicting Atlantic tropical cyclones and hurricanes, but new research supported by the Climate Variability and Predictability program, and accepted for publication in the Journal of Climate, demonstrates several shortcomings in CMIP5 models preventing accurate representation of AEWs.

DYNAMO campaign aircraft observations improve understanding of MJO

Research supported by NOAA CPO's Climate Variability and Predictability (CVP) program highlighting improved understanding of Madden-Julian Oscillation (MJO) resulting from DYNAMO campaign aircraft observations has been accepted for publication in the Bulletin of the American Meteorological Society.
CVP-funded research tests microphysical schemes in the WRF model 9 June 2015

CVP-funded research tests microphysical schemes in the WRF model

esearch supported by NOAA CPO’s Climate Variability and Predictability (CVP) program has been accepted for publication in the Journal of Atmospheric Science. The paper by Li et al., "The sensitivity of simulated shallow cumulus convection and cold pools to microphysics," explores how two separate microphysical schemes (the Thompson and Morrison schemes) used in nested Weather Research and Forecasting (WRF) model simulations affect the generation of precipitation and evaporation in the model.
