Based on primary data that documented the impacts of and recovery from Hurricane Sandy in New York City, researchers identified which of the common indicators reflect vulnerability and resilience to coastal flooding in urban areas.
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.
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.
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.
After the Pacific Northwest RISA published a study suggesting increased flooding magnitudes in the future for the region, authors Laura Queen, Bart Nijssen, and Phil Mote presented their findings and facilitated a discussion about the research in a webinar.
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.
Occurring frequently over the Southern Plains, droughts are the second most costly U.S. weather and climate disaster. Many efforts have been made to advance drought monitoring, but modeling water variability during drought remains a challenge as numerous physical processes control soil moisture variability.
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.
