A new study shows that, regardless of future levels of greenhouse gas emissions, the warming climate has locked in an elevated risk of intense megadroughts for the region – but mitigation efforts are still important.
Nine new postdoctoral fellows are commencing cutting-edge research projects that will contribute innovative climate science to the research community as well as NOAA's mission.
From warmer ocean temperatures to longer and more intense droughts and heat waves, climate change is affecting our entire planet. Scientists at NOAA have long worked to track, understand and predict how climate change is progressing and impacting ecosystems, communities and economies.

Government interventions, such as mask mandates and school closures, rather than meteorological factors appear to have primarily influenced COVID-19’s spread in 2020 and early 2021, according to a new report.
As the planet warms, scientists expect that mountain snowpack should melt progressively earlier in the year – but that melt isn't evenly distribted from location to location.
A new model named SPOTer (Seasonal Probabilistic Outlook for Tornadoes) shows promise in predicting active seasons 1-2 months in advance.
