NCAR will collaborate on new initiative to integrate AI with climate modeling
The National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR) is a collaborator on a new $25 million initiative that will use artificial intelligence to improve traditional Earth system models with the goal of advancing climate research to better inform decision makers with more actionable information.
Early humans escaped worst impacts of massive volcanic eruption
A massive volcanic eruption in Indonesia about 74,000 years ago affected the climate but likely had limited impacts on early human populations in Africa, according to new research co-authored by NCAR scientists.
Solar geoengineering can help safeguard crop yields from climate change
Researchers use an NCAR-based model to study impacts on crops.
Paris Agreement targets could greatly reduce loss of ice sheets, glaciers
A major international study predicts that sea level rise from the melting of land ice could be halved this century if society were to limit warming to 1.5°Celsius.
COVID-19 lockdowns linked to pollution spikes in some cities
Lockdowns last year in response to COVID-19 resulted in drastic cuts to emissions, especially from vehicle tailpipes, and yet some urban areas saw a paradoxical spike in ozone air pollution.
