Grantees will engage directly with decision makers from a diverse range of sectors and communities to implement climate adaptation projects in the Great Lakes using GLISA’s existing climate information services.
On September 23, the California-Nevada Drought Early Warning System (CA-NV DEWS) Drought & Climate Outlook Webinar will provide an overview of the current conditions and outlook for the fall into winter as well as the role of atmospheric rivers in Western North America.
A new study shows significant potential in using atmospheric patterns to forecast coastal flooding that occurs without rainfall during high tides.
The Climate Program Office’s Alaska RISA team (Alaska Center for Climate Assessment and Policy), in partnership with the International Arctic Research Center and the University of Alaska, Fairbanks, has released a new report, Alaska’s Changing Environment, documenting recent observed profound changes in the environment related to extreme weather events and deviations from the historical climate.
Over the last several decades, climate models have significantly improved due to enhancements in technology and data. However, producing reliable climate forecasts remains a challenge due to the climate models’ inability to include local and mesoscale land and atmospheric processes.
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...
