The Climate Program Office currently supports two Integrated Information Systems


National Integrated Heat Health Information System (NIHHIS)

NOAA’s service and research help the nation understand, anticipate and respond to increased heat waves and heat-related events. The Climate Program Office is helping to lead the charge in preparing for weather and climate extremes by helping to build a National Integrated Heat Health Information System (NIHHIS). Sustained collaboration between public health and weather and climate communities over the past several years has defined the demand for and capacity to use heat forecasts and related vulnerability and adaptation information. NOAA, led by CPO and in partnership with the Centers for Disease Control, is working to build a National Integrated Heat Health Information System.

National Integrated Drought Information System (NIDIS)

The National Integrated Drought Information System (NIDIS) provides dynamic and easily accessible drought information for the Nation. Among the decision makers who are benefitting from this source of authoritative, reliable information are farmers making decisions about crops, forestry professionals planning ahead for the next fire season, and urban water managers preparing for high-demand seasons. NIDIS provides data that help decision makers assess the risk of having too little water and prepare for and mitigate the effects of drought. NIDIS is continually developing more robust services and regional decision support resources.
