The Subseasonal eXperiment: A Major Coordinated Effort to Attack the Subseasonal Prediction Problem and Advance Operations and Research hand-in-hand 5 November 2019

The Subseasonal eXperiment: A Major Coordinated Effort to Attack the Subseasonal Prediction Problem and Advance Operations and Research hand-in-hand

A well-known gap in prediction skill extending from two weeks to several months exists in our climate modeling systems. With the inability of climate models to include all local and mesoscale land and atmospheric processes, reliable subseasonal forecasts and predictions have been difficult to produce.

How Hurricane Strength Impacts Rainfall Intensity and Coverage

Heavy and widespread rainfall during landfalling tropical cyclones can cause severe damage, large financial losses, and the loss of life. In 2017 and 2018 alone, U.S. landfalling hurricanes contributed to more than 3,000 deaths and $300 billion in damages.

NOAA’s Climate Program Office awards $22.8M to advance climate understanding and prediction, enhance resilience 9 October 2019

NOAA’s Climate Program Office awards $22.8M to advance climate understanding and prediction, enhance resilience

NOAA’s Climate Program Office (CPO), part of NOAA’s Office of Oceanic and Atmospheric Research, is announcing a total of $22.8 million in competitive awards to support 62 new projects. The diverse set of new projects ranges from explaining long-term trends in atmospheric composition to supporting resiliency in fishing communities.

Old weather “time machine” opens a treasure trove for researchers 9 October 2019

Old weather “time machine” opens a treasure trove for researchers

One key to the past is crowd-sourcing data recovery

This month, a research team, funded in part by CPO's Climate Observations and Monitoring Program and Modeling, Analysis, Predictions, and Projections Program, published an update to a weather “time machine” they’ve been developing since 2011. This third version of the 20th Century Reanalysis Project, or 20CRv3 for short, is a dauntingly complex, high-resolution, four-dimensional reconstruction of the global climate that estimates what the weather was for every day back to 1836.

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.
