On January 9, NOAA's Climate Program Office (CPO) announced a FY 2013 federal funding opportunity for the Regional Integrated Science and Assessments (RISA) program.
A newly released case study explores the wide-reaching impacts of four consecutive extreme weather events in the Apalachicola-Chattahoochee-Flint River Basin (ACF) in Georgia, which cost taxpayers millions of dollars in damaged infrastructure, homes, and businesses and threatened water supply for ecological, agricultural, energy, and urban water users.
The NOAA CPO Modeling, Analysis, Predictions, and Projections (MAPP) program hosted a webinar on Tuesday, January 15 titled “Extratropical Climate Extremes".
The Pacific Islands Regional Climate Assessment (PIRCA) released its first report, Climate Change and Pacific Islands: Indicators and Impacts (Island Press). The report is aimed at assessing the state of knowledge about climate change indicators, impacts, and adaptive capacity of the Hawaiian archipelago and the US-Affiliated Pacific Islands (USAPI).
NOAA has released a report that estimates global mean sea level rise over the next century based on a comprehensive synthesis of existing scientific literature. Scientists have very high confidence (greater than 90% chance) that global mean sea level will rise at least 8 inches (0.2 meter) and no more than 6.6 feet (2.0 meters) by 2100.
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.
