Based on primary data that documented the impacts of and recovery from Hurricane Sandy in New York City, researchers identified which of the common indicators reflect vulnerability and resilience to coastal flooding in urban areas.
The day-long Dialogue is an opportunity for Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC) climate justice scholars, organizers, and funders to come together to explore how to inclusively engage, inform, and empower the public to participate in just solutions to the climate crisis—an essential undertaking if humanity is to meet the urgency and scale of the challenge.
The choice of representative concentration pathways (RCPs) and shared socioeconomic pathways (SSPs) are critical to using climate projections to make decisions, but where these scenarios come from and what they mean is complex but necessary to understand. The Great Lakes RISA guide is geared toward practitioners already using or wanting to use future climate information in their work, but who are not familiar with the underlying assumptions and choices surrounding climate data.
In honor of Women’s History Month, we are profiling female staff and scientists who work at the NOAA Climate Program Office (CPO) or are funded by NOAA CPO. Dr. Allison Wing, the subject of this interview, works as an assistant professor in the Department of Earth, Ocean and Atmospheric Science (EOAS) at Florida State University. She also holds an appointment as an adjunct associate research scientist at Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory.
After the Pacific Northwest RISA published a study suggesting increased flooding magnitudes in the future for the region, authors Laura Queen, Bart Nijssen, and Phil Mote presented their findings and facilitated a discussion about the research in a webinar.
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.
