Global and regional climate analysis

Global and Regional Climate Analysis

  • Maintain and monitor various atmospheric and oceanic real-time climate analyses systems (R1, R2, NARR, GODAS)

  • Disseminates associated datasets to customers and partners

  • Analyses are either model based or objective

  • The analysis efforts are the backbone for real-time global climate monitoring

Applied research1

Applied Research

  • Understanding predictability for various time-scales

    • MJO predictability and the influence of air-sea interaction

    • Sources and estimates of associated predictability (e.g., sea-ice, climate trends;…)

    • Weather-Climate connection: Impact of LF variability on storm tracks, etc.

  • Developing new products

    • Monitoring of ENSO heat budget

    • Objective drought outlook

Summary

Summary

  • Real-time climate analysis and monitoring products generated by the Development Branch are used extensively worldwide

  • Analysis products maintained by the Development Branch, e.g., R1, R2, NARR, rainfall, have a wide audience and user base

  • Real-time briefings provided by the Development Branch are a reliable source of evolving global climate conditions

  • Applied research efforts in the Development Branch focuses on advancing NOAA’s climate analysis, monitoring, and prediction efforts
