A new NOAA Research-funded study warns that from 2054-2079, sea level rise could lead to a total of 165 flooding events compared to the 1979-2004 total of 7 flooding events in the Big Apple, and that major flood events may be 3 to 4 times more frequent.
Representatives from academia, government, and the private sector recently concluded a two day NOAA-supported workshop on improving understanding and prediction of extreme weather and climate from two weeks to a season ahead (subseasonal to seasonal). This workshop followed a kickoff meeting for a new NOAA Research-organized Subseasonal to Seasonal (S2S) Prediction Task Force.
Two new NOAA Research-funded studies provide insight into a potential new source of El Niño predictability and future research and forecast challenges for these ocean warming events.

Americans’ health, security and economic wellbeing are tied to climate and weather. Every day, we see communities grappling with environmental challenges due to unusual or extreme events related to climate and weather. In 2011, the United States experienced a record high number (14) of climate- and weather-related disasters where overall costs reached or exceeded $1 billion. Combined, these events claimed 670 lives, caused more than 6,000 injuries, and cost $55 billion in damages. Businesses, policy leaders, resource managers and citizens are increasingly asking for information to help them address such challenges.
