NOAA’s Climate Variability and Predictability (CVP) Program is funding eight new projects (10 academic awards, four NOAA Lab, Center or CI awards) for a two-year total of $3.961 million in FY18 intended to contribute to the goals of TPOS 2020.
A CPO-funded study analyzed cloudiness and rainfall changes associated with the Madden-Julian Oscillation, which is known to influence weather in the United States.
A CPO-funded study published on Nature Climate Change demonstrates how understanding natural climate variability can improve predictions of sea-ice coverage at short and long term scales.
This study highlights modeling techniques that may enhance predictability of decadal climate change and understanding of North American drought.
CPO-supported researchers examined convective variability under different climate scenarios to understand future reliability of the Madden-Julian Oscillation in weather forecasting.
