Showcasing the Heat.gov portal, housed under NOAA's CPO, provides a one-stop hub on heat and health for the U.S. and is a priority of President Biden’s National Climate Task Force and its Interagency Working Group on Extreme Heat.
The Urban Heat Island Mapping Campaign program is a signature program of NIHHIS, and the results from the mapping campaigns can be used to inform decision makers and implement cooling solutions across the US.
This methodology, extended from the original Plan Integration for Resilience Scorecard (PIRS) approach, enables communities to understand their net impact on heat resilience planning and policies to see where they are reducing heat and also where they may be adding to the problem.
NOAA's NIHHIS along with partners at NESDIS's data visualization lab and NOAA's Science on a Sphere have developed a virtual reality experience that will be highlighted by the US Government at the US Center during COP27.
This webinar series will provide the first public look at early outcomes from the 5 Extreme Heat Risk Initiative awards currently underway as well as research outcomes focused on heat from across the CPO portfolio.
The Climate Program Office (CPO) manages competitive research programs in which NOAA funds high-priority climate science, assessments, decision support research, outreach, education, and capacity-building activities designed to advance our understanding of Earth’s climate system, and to foster the application of this knowledge in risk management and adaptation efforts. CPO-supported research is conducted in regions across the United States, at national and international scales, and globally. Learn more...
