Instrumental measurements, proxy data, climate model projections

How El Niño is like different flavors of ice cream.  Seriously.

NASA Educator Webinar
October 16, 2014

Scientists from two NASA Earth science missions will address how their synergistic research helps us to understand Earth's water cycle, including extreme events such as floods.

This OSU webinar will provide an overview of how interested stakeholders can obtain information from NOAA’s climate service offices.

OLR anomalies in 2012 versus 2014

Where is El Niño?  How is this year different from 2012 when El Niño was predicted, but never arrived?  

CFSv2 ensemble forecast Nino3.4 sea-surface temperature

The chance of an El Nino has dropped to about 65%. What led to this change in the forecast?

State of the Climate in 2013

On July 17, NOAA and the American Meteorological Society released the State of the Climate in 2013 report. A 24-year tradition encompassing the work of 425 authors from 57 countries, the report uses dozens of climate indicators to track patterns, changes, & trends of the global climate system.

This interactive visualization is a suite of weather and climate datasets as well as tools with which to manipulate and display them visually.

This visualization is a website with an interactive calculator that allows for estimation of greenhouse gas production from croplands in the United States.

This video is simple in its appearance, but it contains a wealth of relevant information about global climate models.

This video features research conducted at University of Colorado's Institute of Arctic and Alpine Research, which studies isotopes of hydrogen trapped in ice cores to understand climate changes in the past.
