The report seeks to educate the general public about the extreme winter weather event in February 2021 as it describes records that were broken, the context of the event compared to climatology and past events, and impacts to sectors like infrastructure, the economy, the environment, and society.
From warmer ocean temperatures to longer and more intense droughts and heat waves, climate change is affecting our entire planet. Scientists at NOAA have long worked to track, understand and predict how climate change is progressing and impacting ecosystems, communities and economies. In honor of Earth Day, take a look at five ways scientists, including researchers funded by CPO's Regional Integreated Sciences and Assessments (RISA) program, are studying this far-reaching global trend.
The webinars are a key way for experts to share climate-related information with Alaska stakeholders, including sea/river ice status, CPC climate outlooks, precipitation projections, and decision support tools for aviation.
The Mid-Atlantic Regional Integrated Sciences and Assessment (MARISA), a CPO RISA team, recently published the Model Inventory and Selection Tool (MIST). MIST features a collection of models relevant for water management and decision making in the Chesapeake Bay Watershed and Mid-Atlantic region.
The 3-year project will use different technology-assisted communication methods (e.g., webinar) to work with communities throughout Alabama, Florida, Louisiana, Mississippi, and Texas to assess their vulnerability to storm events and help integrate adaptation practices into existing planning processes.
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.
