The study, published in the Journal of Weather and Climate Extremes, found that the use of ensemble-based flood forecasting systems are more advanced than single forecasting systems, as they provide better information that can be used in emergency management decision making in the event of a disaster.
This research analyzed focus group responses to better understand the context for heat health warning systems and help incorporate stakeholder needs and interests into future management.
The White House, U.S. Department of the Interior, and U.S. Commerce Department’s National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration jointly launched a new website, titled The Climate Mapping for Resilience and Adaptation (CMRA), to help communities across the nation analyze their exposure to a range of climate- related hazards and use this information to apply for federal funds to support climate resiliency projects for their communities.
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.
