NOAA to support BIPOC Climate Justice Dialogue

The day-long Dialogue is an opportunity for Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC) climate justice scholars, organizers, and funders to come together to explore how to inclusively engage, inform, and empower the public to participate in just solutions to the climate crisis—an essential undertaking if humanity is to meet the urgency and scale of the challenge.

Great Lakes RISA publishes a practitioner’s guide to climate model scenarios

The choice of representative concentration pathways (RCPs) and shared socioeconomic pathways (SSPs) are critical to using climate projections to make decisions, but where these scenarios come from and what they mean is complex but necessary to understand. The Great Lakes RISA guide is geared toward practitioners already using or wanting to use future climate information in their work, but who are not familiar with the underlying assumptions and choices surrounding climate data. 

Women’s History Month: A conversation with Dr. Allison Wing

In honor of Women’s History Month, we are profiling female staff and scientists who work at the NOAA Climate Program Office (CPO) or are funded by NOAA CPO. Dr. Allison Wing, the subject of this interview, works as an assistant professor in the Department of Earth, Ocean and Atmospheric Science (EOAS) at Florida State University. She also holds an appointment as an adjunct associate research scientist at Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory.

Women’s History Month: A conversation with Dr. Angeline Pendergrass

In honor of Women’s History Month, NOAA is highlighting a few of its female scientists and funded researchers who are making significant strides in the climate sciences and other science fields. The following interview features Dr. Angeline Pendergrass, Assistant Professor in the Department of Earth and Atmospheric Science at Cornell University and Project Scientist I at the National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR). She is a co-lead of the NOAA CMIP6 Task Force, which is funded by the NOAA Climate Program Office’s Modeling, Analysis, Predictions, and Projections (MAPP) Program. She focuses on extreme precipitation and its response to climate variability and change.

Women’s History Month: A conversation with Dr. Elizabeth Barnes

In honor of Women’s History Month, NOAA is highlighting a few of its female scientists and funded researchers who are making significant strides in the climate sciences and other science fields. The following interview is with Dr. Elizabeth Barnes, Associate Professor in the Department of Atmospheric Science at Colorado State University. Her research is funded in part by the NOAA Climate Program Office’s Modeling, Analysis, Predictions, and Projections (MAPP) Program. She focuses on climate variability and change, and how data science can help improve our understanding.
