On November 18-19, stakeholders and scientists will convene in Silver Spring to discuss “Climate Research to Enhance Resilience to Extreme Heat” as part of CPO’s Earth System Science and Modeling (ESSM) community workshop. Extreme heat can be incredibly dangerous to public health, especially for communities unequipped to plan and respond. Potential impacts also extend to sectors like agriculture, energy, water resources, fisheries, and transportation. To help address impacts, this workshop will identify opportunities for ESSM’s programs to support climate research that enhances resilience to extreme heat. Participants, including researchers, users, and stakeholders both inside and outside NOAA, will share ideas during keynote presentations, lightning talks, and topical break-out sessions. These ideas will be captured in a workshop report that will help inform future ESSM research directions and funding priorities. CPO’s FY20 research priorities reflect community feedback from last year’s 2018 ESSM workshop session on coastal and marine ecosystem management. Registration for the upcoming workshop is open now until October 26 or when maximum capacity is reached.
