New insights into the role of atmospheric conditions in Labrador Sea deep convection

New research suggests the abrupt deep convection of the 2008 winter in the Labrador Sea is associated with unusual atmospheric conditions in the western North Atlantic and large-scale cooling in North America.

Increased carbon dioxide suppresses AMOC variability in GFDL ESM2M simulation

Research funded by CPO's Climate Variability and Predictability (CVP) and published in the Journal of Climate found that increased carbon dioxide suppresses variability of the Atlantic Meridional Overturning Circulation (AMOC) in GFDL ESM2M simulation.

Will future global cloud changes amplify global warming? 3 March 2016

Will future global cloud changes amplify global warming?

A new paper supported by NOAA’s Climate Variability and Predictability (CVP) program describes where we are in understanding whether subtropical clouds (and the atmosphere above and below them) will act as a positive or negative feedback to global warming.

A review of the Atlantic Meridional Overturning Circulation: observations, inferences, and mechanisms

A recently published and thorough review of the current state of scientific knowledge regarding the Atlantic Meridional Overturning Circulation (AMOC) has been published in Reviews of Geophysics.This effort was supported by CPO's Climate Variability and Predictability (CVP) and Modeling, Analysis, Prediction, and Projections (MAPP) programs. 

Different Control of Tropical Cyclone Activity in the Eastern Pacific for Two Types of El Niño 1 March 2016

Different Control of Tropical Cyclone Activity in the Eastern Pacific for Two Types of El Niño

Newly published research in Geophysical Research Letters by Boucharel et al.--and supported by CPO's Climate Variability and Predictability program--seeks to understand these modes of expression, or "flavors," of El Niño, and their influence on tropical cyclones.
