NOAA’s newly updated Climate Explorer provides easy access to climate projections for every county in the contiguous United States. The new tool offers downloadable maps, graphs, and data tables of observed and projected temperature, precipitation and climate-related variables dating back to 1950 and out to 2100.
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.

On Wednesday, July 13th, the National Integrated Heat Health Information System held its first regional workshop in El Paso (during an active heat wave and under threat of rolling blackouts) to understand the heat-health needs and unique adaptive approaches of the Rio Grande/Bravo region.
A study funded by the CPO’s Climate Observation Division confirms previous research suggesting spring clouds may be influencing arctic sea ice concentrations in the fall.
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.
About the Climate Program OfficeThe Climate Program Office (CPO) manages competitive research programs in which NOAA funds high-priority climate science, assessments, decision support research, outreach, education, and capacity-building activities designed to advance our understanding of Earth’s climate system, and to foster the application of this knowledge in risk management and adaptation efforts. CPO-supported research is conducted in regions across the United States, at national and international scales, and globally. Learn more...
