Researchers from the California-Nevada Applications Program (CNAP), a NOAA RISA team, led the San Diego Regional Climate Assessment. The American Planning Association recently incorporated their results into a new report.
A recent article supported by AC4 entitled "Enhanced North American carbon uptake associated with El Niño" was published June 5, 2019, in Science Advances. The study found that long-term atmospheric CO2 observations over North America document a persistent response to the El Niño–Southern Oscillation.
Atmospheric rivers are responsible for transporting moisture thousands of miles and providing up to 50% of West Coast precipitation in certain locations. The temperatures of storm systems supplied with water by ARs play a vital role in determining the impacts of an AR event.
This workshop builds on previous investments by IRAP and NOAA in the Caribbean, and provides linkages to ongoing efforts in NOAA and the USGCRP to address climate and health, including heat health.
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...
