Eric is currently training in the University of Colorado School of Medicine’s Fellowship in Climate and Health Science Policy and will be collaborating with NOAA throughout this academic year.
Results show the increasing frequency of these compound extremes is strongly driven by human-caused warming and drying trends.
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...
