Causes for Intraseasonal Sea Surface Salinity Variability in the Western Tropical Pacific Ocean and Its Seasonality 11 January 2016

Causes for Intraseasonal Sea Surface Salinity Variability in the Western Tropical Pacific Ocean and Its Seasonality

A new CVP-supported paper published in the Journal of Geophysical Research explores variability in ocean salinity and how that variability is connected to air-sea interactions, large-scale ocean circulations, and climate phenomena such as the MJO and ENSO.

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 2017, the United States experienced a record-tying 16 climate- and weather-related disasters where overall costs reached or exceeded $1 billion. Combined, these events claimed 362 lives, and had significant economic effects on the areas impacted, costing more than $306 billion. Businesses, policy leaders, resource managers and citizens are increasingly asking for information to help them address such challenges.
