ESSM to host community workshop on extreme heat research

Registration is open now until October 26 or when maximum capacity is reached.

The November 18-19 workshop will bring together stakeholders and scientists to identify opportunities for ESSM’s programs to support climate research that enhances resilience to extreme heat.



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. In 2017, the United States experienced a record-tying 16 climate- and weather-related disasters where overall costs reached or exceeded $1 billion. Combined, these events claimed 362 lives, and had significant economic effects on the areas impacted, costing more than $306 billion. Businesses, policy leaders, resource managers and citizens are increasingly asking for information to help them address such challenges.
