Towards an Improved Understanding and Use of Climate and Hydrological Data on the Water Resources Dashboard
Water resource managers, city planners, and the general public are witnessing changes in the climate, as well as associated impacts to our environment. To better plan for the future, the 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 the Water Resource Foundation collaborated to create a water resources dashboard – a one-stop location for water-relevant data sets. (http://toolkit.climate.gov/topics/water-resources/water-resources-dashboard).
Together, we’ve created this learning series of webcasts that will highlight specific datasets. Each session will target one or more datasets featuring a scientist involved in the development or application of that data set, as well as a practitioner or decision maker that uses them in their operations or future planning. Sessions will include time for questions and answers. The webcast recordings will be added under their respective dataset within the Dashboard for future reference.
