Saharan and Asian dust, biological particles end global journey in California

Saharan and Asian dust, biological particles end global journey in California

A field study of aerosol impacts on clouds and precipitation in the Sierra Nevada mountains shows that dust and microorganisms transported from as far away as the Sahara desert help to spur the precipitation that California counts on for its water supply.

NOAA research finds new way to identify which El Niño events will have biggest impact on U.S. winter weather

NOAA research finds new way to identify which El Niño events will have biggest impact on U.S. winter weather

New research from NOAA and the University of Washington suggests that using satellites to detect heat from deep convective cloud tops may be a way to detect El Niño and could help forecasters predict the unusual weather it causes.

Scientists show climate patterns may influence extreme U.S. tornado seasons

Scientists show climate patterns may influence extreme U.S. tornado seasons

NOAA and university researchers believe they have found a climate signal related to a specific phase of the El Niño-Southern Oscillation that could be linked to, and possibly serve as a predictor of, massive tornado outbreaks.

ABOUT US

Oceanic and Atmospheric Research (OAR) - or "NOAA Research" - provides the research foundation for understanding the complex systems that support our planet. Working in partnership with other organizational units of the NOAA, a bureau of the Department of Commerce, NOAA Research enables better forecasts, earlier warnings for natural disasters, and a greater understanding of the Earth. Our role is to provide unbiased science to better manage the environment, nationally, and globally.
