New research improves our understanding of the crucial ocean carbonate system with support from COM, CVP, and GOMO.
The report provides an overview on how a changing climate is impacting drought assessment and identifies priority actions and research questions.
The Fifth National Climate Assessment (NCA5) represents the latest science in assessing changes in the climate, its national and regional impacts, and options to reduce present and future risk. Every five years, the U.S. Global Change Research Program releases a new National Climate Assessment. The newest assessment, NCA5, is a resource to understand how drought
In a changing climate, the intensity, duration, and frequency of droughts may change. This poses new challenges for drought assessment. To discuss these challenges, the CPO-led National Integrated Drought Information System (NIDIS) and the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) Climate Hubs co-hosted the Drought Assessment in a Changing Climate Technical Working Meeting on February 28–March
NIDIS and Federal Partners Kick Off Project to Develop Climate-Adaptive Drought Planning (CADP) platform
NIDIS and the US Bureau of Reclamation are partnering to develop the CADP platform which will support drought resilience by ensuring equitable access to high quality science and data to improve assessments of drought risk and vulnerability, that account for climate change impacts.
Dr. Paul Miller, a member of the MAPP Drought Task Force, was awarded the Faculty Early Career Development Program (CAREER) award for his research on understanding the mechanisms leading to early warning of meteorological and hydrological drought in the U.S. Caribbean. He is a co-investigator on a project led by Dr. Thomas Mote from the
NIDIS and the University of Nebraska Medical Center co-led the development of the assessment, titled: “Drought and Public Health: A Roadmap for Advancing Engagement and Preparedness.”
This webinar will examine key questions on the status of the megadrought in the West after a record-breaking wet winter was preceded by three straight years of drought as well as 20+ years of mostly dry conditions.
A recent study supported by AC4 uses drought index as a tool to explain the trends of particulate matter (PM) air pollution and its association with wildfires across the US.
NIDIS launched this feature in direct response to the NIDIS Tribal Drought Engagement Strategy, which was developed in close consultation with 22 tribal natural resource managers.
