Water Resources Dashboard – Learning Sessions to Provide Scientific and Practical Applied Information

As we have mentioned previously, several water and planning organizations (i.e., American Planning Association, American Water Works Association, Association of Metropolitan Water Agencies, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, Water Environment Federation, Water Environment Research Foundation, and Water Resources Foundation) worked  to create a water resources dashboard.  Additional information about the dashboard can be found here.

To supplement this effort, we will be holding a series of learning sessions to provide scientific and practical applied information re: the datasets on the dashboard.  Information about the first session can be found by clicking on the article title.

Report Release – Extreme Heat: Hot Cities, 2015 Symposium

On November 12, 2015, DfRR brought together an amazing group of speakers representing the broadest cross-section of professions involved in climate change to highlight both the short and long-term impacts of extreme heat and the risks we take if we fail to act. The committee organized panels and case studies in terms of scale, from the most global challenges to the most local opportunities. Conflicting and contrasting solutions were welcome, making for an oftentimes lively debate. The symposium also illuminated the unresolved and the yet-to-be-determined.

MAPP Webinar Series: Extreme Heat and Health: Creating Environmental Intelligence Through Science, Predictions, and Engagement

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.

A reanalysis of Hurricane Camille

A modern look at one of the United States’ most destructive hurricanes indicates that it was deeper than, but not quite as intense as, originally estimated. This research, funded by CPO’s Climate Observation Division, changed the ranking intensity of Hurricane Camille.


Spring ENSO Variations and North Atlantic SSTs Could Help Long-Range Prediction of U.S. Tornado Outbreaks

In a recent paper published in Environmental Research Letters, scientists with NOAA and the University of Miami have identified how patterns in the spring phases of the El Niño-Southern Oscillation (ENSO), coupled with variability in North Atlantic sea surface temperatures, could help predict U.S. regional tornado outbreaks.
