USDA Forest Service Leverages CPO-Sponsored Tool for Climate Projections

By investing in development of the open-source Climate Explorer tool, CPO's Communication Education and Engagement division enabled the Forest Service to build a derivative tool for their information needs at a fraction of the cost of developing a new tool. The Climate by Forest tool will allow them to access climate projection data by ecoregion within National Forest System lands.

CPO and Community Scientists to Map Urban Heat Inequities in 11 States

To learn where action is needed to protect vulnerable populations now and in the future, CPO’s National Integrated Heat Health Information System (NIHHIS) and partners are launching new community-led campaigns that will map the hottest parts of cities in 11 states across the country this summer. The communities include Albuquerque, New Mexico; Atlanta; New York City; Charleston, South Carolina; Kansas City, Missouri; Raleigh & Durham, North Carolina; San Diego; San Francisco; and parts of New Jersey, Indiana, Massachusetts, and Virginia. 

Government Interventions Rather Than Climate Conditions Primarily Curb COVID-19’s Spread, NOAA and International Team Say 18 March 2021

Government Interventions Rather Than Climate Conditions Primarily Curb COVID-19’s Spread, NOAA and International Team Say

A new report cautions that weather and climate conditions, including the onset of higher temperatures during spring, should not be used as a trigger to relax COVID-19 transmission reduction measures.

New Study Identifies Mountain Snowpack Most “At-Risk” from Climate Change 1 March 2021

New Study Identifies Mountain Snowpack Most “At-Risk” from Climate Change

CPO-funded scientists theorize why snowpack in coastal regions, the Arctic, and the Western U.S. may be among the most at-risk for premature melt from rising temperatures

Climate scientists identify regional variations in snowpack melt as temperatures increase and present a theory that explains which mountain snowpacks worldwide are most “at-risk” from climate change.
