An interactive webinar, led by the CPO Marine Ecosystems Risk Team (MERT), featured NOAA CoastWatch staff and focused on how the CoastWatch data, tools, and capabilities can be used to inform sanctuaries science and management, including climate change assessment and adaptation.
The webinar will focus on climate adaptation investments and strategies to build more resilient communities, as well as the challenges and costs of incorporating climate considerations into local planning efforts.
The webinars will facilitate improved understanding of the Program and the 2021 Funding Opportunity, which will usher in an exciting new phase for the RISA program in responding to decision maker needs, Congressional direction, and strengthening a community of NOAA, federal, state, local, and tribal partners.
NOAA Climate.gov recently published an article, “Climate & French fries,” exploring the impact of climate change on America’s potato crop and French fry industry, and referencing Sectoral Applications Research Program (SARP).
Since the start of the 21st century California and Nevada have suffered extreme wildland fires and droughts that have caused devastating impacts to ecosystems and society. A common feature of these events has been very high evaporative demand—the “thirst” of the atmosphere—which has largely been driven by increased air temperatures caused by anthropogenic climate change
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...
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.
