CPO’s Regional Integrated Sciences and Assessments (RISA) program is hosting a webinar series highlighting the 9 new 5-year RISA teams funded in Fiscal Year 2021. The webinars will serve as a venue to introduce each team, discuss major themes and partners, and preview the projects that will advance climate knowledge and adaptation capacity in their regions.
The Northern Great Plains faces a number of climate hazards and these targeted resources can help communities across the region build climate resilience.
The study provides insights that could potentially extend the warning lead time of cold extremes in the United States, Canada, and Asia.
The method could be an addition to the toolbox of negative emission technologies that could help society meet the goals of the Paris Agreement.
The new maps will help decision makers and the public respond to the current drought, prepare for future drought conditions, and improve the nation’s long-term drought resilience.
Climate Scientists Predict Rapid Increase in High-Tide Flooding for Majority of U.S. Coastlines in the Next Decade
The combined effects of sea-level rise and natural fluctuations in tidal range are anticipated to cause tipping points in the frequency of high-tide flooding. These tipping points can produce acute impacts in underserved communities, who are often unprepared to deal with the consequences.
The 2021 Climate Action Plan for the Chicago Region, co-authored by the Metropolitan Mayors Caucus and the NOAA Climate Program Office, will serve a region which is home to nearly 9 million people in more than 280 cities, towns, and villages. It is one of the first regional climate plans in the United States.
The report states that within the next 80 years, 129 countries will experience an increase in drought exposure mainly due to climate change.
The Southeast faces numerous climate hazards, and this targeted set of resources can help communities across the region build climate resilience.
A recent study co-funded by the Regional Integrated Sciences and Assessments (RISA) program found that sea level rise caused by anthropogenic climate change increased the extent and severity of damages from the 2012 hurricane.
