Researchers from NOAA and the Cooperative Institute for Meteorological Satellite Studies, funded by CPO's Climate Observations and Monitoring Program, have greater confidence that warming surface temperatures and increasing tropical cyclone intensity appear to go hand-in-hand.
The National Integrated Drought Information System will host an upcoming webinar and just released a webinar recording that discuss recent research which shows that anthropogenic warming is leading to an emerging megadrought in southwestern North America.
The framework could help managers better assess, anticipate, and mitigate potential impacts of extreme warming events on wildlife health.
Climate models project dangerous combinations of heat and humidity by the end of the 21st century. New research says these extremes are already happening.
The study demonstrates the value of fostering scientist-stakeholder relationships in catalyzing collaborative public health efforts.
The Climate Program Office (CPO) manages competitive research programs in which NOAA funds high-priority climate science, assessments, decision support research, outreach, education, and capacity-building activities designed to advance our understanding of Earth’s climate system, and to foster the application of this knowledge in risk management and adaptation efforts. CPO-supported research is conducted in regions across the United States, at national and international scales, and globally. Learn more...
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.
