Provides science and information for a climate-smart nation, including the climate-interested public, through the News & Features, Maps & Data, and Teaching Climate sections.
The sister site to Climate.gov, USCRT serves policy makers, professionals, and others facing climate-related decisions.
Provides authoritative drought information including data, decision-support products, resources, and information on drought—from drought monitoring and prediction, to planning and preparedness, to applied research.
Heat.gov is a portal for the collaboration of NIHHIS Federal partners to build societal understanding of heat risks, develops science-based solutions, improves capacity, communication, and decision-making to reduce heat-related illness and death.
CMRA is a county-scale screening tool that helps users recognize their exposure to climate-related hazards (i.e. extreme heat, drought, wildfires, flooding, and coastal inundation), now and in the future.
NOAA Climate Adaptation Partnerships (CAP) / Regional Integrated Sciences and Assessments (RISA) program is an applied research and engagement program that expands society’s regional capacity to adapt to climate impacts in the U.S. by supporting sustained, collaborative relationships that help communities build lasting and equitable climate resilience.
Provides information (as of 2022) and extends the historical climate record to 2020 for each state. The summaries cover assessment topics directly related to NOAA’s mission, specifically historical climate variations and trends, future climate model projections of climate conditions during the 21st century, and past and future conditions of sea level and coastal flooding.
The Climate Explorer gives users a way to check how climate conditions in the United States are projected to change over the coming decades. This information—derived from global climate models—is available for counties and county-equivalents for all 50 states and U.S. territories in the United States.
As a mapping tool, CHaMP displays climate metrics, hazard data, and hazard impacts in a visual format with downloadable data visualizations.
Representing the first two volumes of the Fourth National Climate Assessment (NCA4), this report is an authoritative assessment of the science of climate change, with a focus on the United States.
This report fulfills the Global Change Research Act of 1990 mandate by focusing on the human welfare, societal, and environmental elements of climate change and variability for 10 regions and 18 national topics, with particular attention paid to observed and projected risks, impacts, consideration of risk reduction, and implications under different mitigation pathways.
A draft version of the Fifth National Climate Assessment (NCA5) is now available for a 12-week public review and comment period through 11:59 pm ET on January 27, 2023.
Provides information about how NOAA supports wildfire science and response with a highlight on the climate connection of wildfires.
Provides an overview of current research results about the correlation of global warming and hurricanes.
Americans’ health, security and economic wellbeing are tied to climate and weather. Every day, we see communities grappling with environmental challenges due to unusual or extreme events related to climate and weather.
