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.

GO-SHIP has advanced our understanding of the ocean’s role in various climate phenomena, says new report 21 March 2016

GO-SHIP has advanced our understanding of the ocean’s role in various climate phenomena, says new report

A new report, published in The Annual Review of Marine Science by Lynne Talley et. al., emphasized that GO-SHIP helped highlight the ocean’s role in climate change, carbon cycling, and biogeochemical responses to climate change.

New workshop report: high resolution modeling has potential to improve climate predictions but more experimentation is needed 21 March 2016

New workshop report: high resolution modeling has potential to improve climate predictions but more experimentation is needed

A new report summarizes key findings from the joint NOAA and U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) high resolution modeling workshop held at the NOAA Center for Weather and Climate Prediction in College Park, Maryland on September 30th through October 2nd. Overall, the workshop report states that there have been some promising efforts in the climate predictions (weeks to seasons) and long-term projections communities to explore using high resolution to improve climate models and prediction.

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.
