NOAA’s Climate Program Office today launched a newly redesigned version of Climate.gov, NOAA’s award-winning, flagship website that provides the public with clear, timely, and science-based information about climate.
Climate Services Webinar Spotlights Climate and Fisheries Adaptation Program PI and Northeast Fisheries Climate Modeling Project
In 2020, the joint CPO-NMFS Climate and Fisheries Adaptation Program (CAFA) funded projects to develop integrated climate-fisheries modeling frameworks in four regions, which will evaluate fisheries management and adaptation strategies and serve as pilot projects for the NOAA Climate and Fisheries Initiative. This April 29th webinar will discuss the project in the Northeast region.
Who is vulnerable and who is resilient to coastal flooding? Lessons from Hurricane Sandy in New York City
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 new web portal provides data on a number of indicators that track the status and trends of seven major marine ecosystems across the United States as well as a national synthesis.
NOAA’s Climate Variability and Predictability (CVP) Program, in partnership with NOAA Fisheries’ Office of Science and Technology, is announcing four new projects in Fiscal Year 2020 (FY20) that aim to strengthen the understanding of processes that affect ocean conditions in the context of climate variability and change. Project outcomes will describe how our changing climate may affect
NOAA’s Coastal and Ocean Climate Applications (COCA) Climate and Fisheries Program, in partnership with NOAA Fisheries’ Office of Science and Technology, has competitively awarded five new projects to support sustainable fisheries management in a changing climate. The new projects will assess implications for fish stocks, fisheries, and the communities and economies that depend on them. The
Participants identified rising ocean temperatures; ocean acidification and carbonate dynamics; the impacts of climate variability and change on deep water ecosystems; extreme events; and the ability to predict and project these changes at temporal and spatial scales meaningful to sanctuaries as the most pressing needs.
Originally developed through a 2009 CPO/Coastal and Ocean Climate Applications (COCA) Program project, the tool, called “VCAPS,” is designed to assist communities in becoming more resilient to climate change and weather events through local vulnerability assessments and climate adaptation planning.
MERT Partners with East Coast and Great Lakes National Marine Sanctuaries to Identify Climate Science Needs During Virtual Focus Group
Participants identified rising ocean temperatures; ocean acidification and carbonate dynamics; runoff and land/sea interactions; the impacts of climate variability and change on deep water ecosystems; extreme events; and the ability to predict and project these changes at temporal and spatial scales meaningful to sanctuaries as the most pressing needs.
Webinar Recording Now Available: “Environmental Justice/Service Equity: An Equitable Future Within the Water Utility Realm”
This webinar was the second in a series that explores science and research topics relevant to the “Managing Water Resources Along the Coast” community of practice.
