Springtime air pollution from Asia, swept across the Pacific Ocean on winds, can contribute to episodes of high surface ozone pollution in the western United States.
A senior researcher at NOAA's Geophysical Fluid Dynamics Laboratory (GFDL) in Princeton, N.J., Morris Bender has been on the hurricane research team at GFDL since 1976, developing highly accurate models for hurricane forecasting and more recently exploring the influence of climate change on hurricane activity.
Human-caused climate warming increased the chances of the torrential rains that unleashed devastating floods in south Louisiana in mid August by at least 40 percent, according to a team of NOAA and partner scientists with World Weather Attribution (WWA) who conducted a rapid assessment of the role of climate on the historic heavy rain event.
NOAA scientists have developed a new high-resolution climate model that shows southwestern Australia’s long-term decline in fall and winter rainfall is caused by increases in manmade greenhouse gas emissions and ozone depletion, according to research published today in Nature Geoscience.
Using high-powered computers, Kirsten Findell examines floods and droughts, land-atmosphere interactions, and land cover and land use change.
