March: Out Like a Lion—A Climate.gov Video
April 15, 2013, Climate.gov released a new video starring Deke Arndt, Chief of the Climate Monitoring Branch at NCDC. The video, entitled “March: Out Like a Lion” discusses how low pressure differences between the Arctic and midlatitude regions define the negative phase of the Arctic Oscillation and often bring cold temperature to North America, Europe, or northern Asia. The Arctic Oscillation played a significant role in the difference in March 2012 and March 2013 temperatures across the United States.
Many other climate information resources are also available on Climate.gov including assessments, reports, teaching resources, and multimedia and educational games about climate science.
