As NOAA promotes green and natural infrastructure, it is helpful to understand the specific arrangements that provide co-benefits to communities.
A new article published in the Bulletin of the American Meteorological Society aims to improve the accessibility and usability of climate models to climate researchers, practitioners, and policy-makers.
When extreme events like hurricanes or wildfires occur simultaneously or in quick succession, the impacts play off of each other, making the damage associated with one of these events worse than if it had occurred on its own.
This summer, citizen scientists will map hot spots, known as “urban heat islands,” in 13 cities across the country to help communities identify areas where they can take action to protect people from heat stress.
The findings address an important gap in understanding that could help advance prediction capability for U.S. summer to fall precipitation.
