Understanding Local & Remote Forcing of Interannual Variability of Equatorial Eastern Indian Ocean Upwelling 20 January 2016

Understanding Local & Remote Forcing of Interannual Variability of Equatorial Eastern Indian Ocean Upwelling

A recently published article in the Journal of Physical Oceanography written by Chen et al., and supported by CPO’s Climate Variability and Predictability (CVP) program, explores remote and local forcing that drives the interannual variability of EIO upwelling by analyzing observations and performing experiments in the HYCOM ocean model.

Assessing the Global Warming Potential of Human Settlement Expansion 8 January 2016

Assessing the Global Warming Potential of Human Settlement Expansion

A new study supported by AC4 and published in Science of the Total Environment explores the biophysical implications of future human settlement expansion. Reinmann et al. use EPA’s Integrated Climate and Land Use Scenarios model to project changes in Massachusetts through 2050.

Improving Seasonal Forecasts of Tropical Cyclone Activity 4 January 2016

Improving Seasonal Forecasts of Tropical Cyclone Activity

Tropical cyclones are one of the biggest natural threats to society, causing substantial economic damage and loss of life annually. Accurate and reliable seasonal predictions of tropical cyclone activity are essential for disaster preparedness, but remain challenging for climate scientists. In a new MAPP-supported study, Manganello et al.
indicates that the potential for high-resolution coupled (atmosphere-ocean) modeling to improve seasonal forecasting of tropical cyclone activity may be greater than previously believed.

Sea ice loss predicted to slow in the Atlantic, says new CVP-funded research 28 December 2015

Sea ice loss predicted to slow in the Atlantic, says new CVP-funded research

“There is little doubt that we will see a decline in Arctic sea ice cover in this century in response to anthropogenic warming, and yet internal climate variations and other external forcings could generate considerable spread in Arctic sea ice trends on decadal timescales,” begins a newly released article by Yeager et al., in Geophysical Research Letters.

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.
