The workshop brought together a diverse community to share developments in research and application of weather and climate information for societal decision-making.
Jones is set to discuss the social equity implications of extreme heat and how the NIHHIS-funded urban heat island mapping campaigns are providing vital information. This highly visible event will reach hundreds to thousands of Weather-Ready Nation ambassadors interested in extreme heat risk mitigation and social equity
