Distinguishing Between Low and High Climate Sensitivity in Climate Models

New research distinguishes between climate models with low and high climate sensitivity due to aerosol-cloud interactions, helping climate scientists to better understand and reduce uncertainty in future climate projections. 

Paleo-Climate Datasets Reveal a Tropically-driven Global Teleconnection 19 January 2021

Paleo-Climate Datasets Reveal a Tropically-driven Global Teleconnection

Climate Variability & Predictability (CVP) and Modeling, Analysis, Predictions and Projections (MAPP) funded a recent study which proposes a newly-named global teleconnection linking cooling temperature trends over Eurasia and warming trends in the Arctic to variability in low-frequency tropical sea surface temperatures.

Ranking the Performance of Climate Models for Summertime Sea Ice Simulation 19 January 2021

Ranking the Performance of Climate Models for Summertime Sea Ice Simulation

Researchers funded by both the CPO Climate Variability & Predictability (CVP) program and the Modeling, Analysis, Predictions and Projections (MAPP) program rank the performance of over 30 CMIP5/6 climate models in reproducing observed atmosphere-sea ice relationships.

Study Provides New Understanding of Plants, Droughts, and Climate Change to Improve Models 12 January 2021

Study Provides New Understanding of Plants, Droughts, and Climate Change to Improve Models

Building models that can appropriately capture plant-water interactions is critical in order to accurately simulate the onset and evolution of droughts and their cascading impacts throughout the Earth system.
