A GEOS-5 simulation of Hurricane Sandy was featured in a National Geographic article on rising seas. More information on this simulation is available on our Tracking Hurricanes with GEOS-5 research highlight.

06.19.2013 GMAO Contributes to Sea Ice Outlook

Since the GEOS-5 seasonal forecasts are global with an initialized sea-ice distribution, the GMAO has begun to contribute to the Sea Ice Outlook for September Sea Ice extent organized by SEARCH and ARCUS. The consensus is for an increasing downward trend of September sea ice extent, well below the 1979-2007 September mean. Read more.

06.17.2013 Upgrade to GEOS-5 Observation Impact Monitoring

The GEOS-5 Observation Impact Monitoring System has been upgraded to include the effects of moist physical processes. The upgrade provides more accurate estimates of observation impact in GEOS-5, especially for moist-sensitive observations from AIRS, MHS, TMI, and some wind observations. View Observation Impacts.
