A CPO-funded study was recently published in the Journal of Geophysical Research, showing an abrupt sea level rise in the northern Indian Ocean since 2003.
The Climate Program Office’s Stephen R. Piotrowicz will receive one of the 2016 NOAA Administrator’s Awards for his outstanding management of the US Argo Ocean Observing program.
NOAA is investing $4.5 million over the next four years in four projects testing technology to enhance the Tropical Pacific Observing System (TPOS), which improves understanding of the El Niño-Southern Oscillation (ENSO), how it develops, and how it affects Earth’s weather.
New CPO-supported research found that decreasing Arctic sea ice has been an important contributor to changes in atmospheric circulation and temperature, both factors promoting Greenland’s surface melt.
An assessment of in situ sea level atmospheric pressure data from NOAA’s Global Drifter Program and other international partners demonstrates that surface velocity drifters contribute crucial information for marine weather prediction.
