New NOAA-Princeton research suggests that annual snowmelt in the American West can be predicted to the scale of a mountain range as early as March — some eight months before winter begins. The research has the potential to improve water-related decisions for numerous sectors, including agriculture, tourism and fire-control.

Although the Atlantic Mutidecadal Oscillation (AMO) is well documented, the underlying mechanism that drives it is unknown and remains up for debate. In a new study, AOS Faculty Member Rong Zhang presents compelling findings in support of the idea that ocean dynamics play a central role in the AMO.
