NOAA’s Regional Integrated Sciences and Assessments (RISA) Program is announcing three new five-year awards totaling $11.6 million to research institutions in Alaska, the Carolinas, and the Mid-Atlantic to improve the expertise and ability of managers and planners to prepare for and adapt to climate variability and change.
The Pacific Islands Regional Climate Assessment (PIRCA) launched its new website at PIRCA.org.
CPO’s programs are seeking applications for 7 individual competitions in FY 2017 for an estimated $10 million available and approximately 100 new awards pending budget appropriations. It is anticipated that most awards will be at a funding level between $50,000 and $300,000 per year, with some exceptions for larger awards. Visit cpo.noaa.gov/GrantsandProjects.aspx for more detailed information and instructions.
A CPO-supported study projected substantially higher heat-related mortality under RCP 8.5 and substantially reduced deaths under RCP 4.5 in New York City through the 21st century.
The NOAA CPO Modeling, Analysis, Predictions, and Projections (MAPP) program will host a webinar on the topic of Extreme Heat and Health: Creating Environmental Intelligence Through Science, Predictions, and Engagement on Thursday, April 28, 2016. The webinar is co-hosted by the National Integrated Heat Health Information System (NIHHIS), the Climate Variability and Predictability (CVP) program, the Climate Observations and Monitoring (COM) program, and the Regional Integrated Science and Assessments (RISA) program. The announcement is provided here.
NOAA’s Regional Integrated Sciences & Assessments (RISA) program supports research teams that help expand and build the nation’s capacity to prepare for and adapt to climate variability and change. Central to the RISA approach are commitments to process, partnership, and trust building. Learn more...
