This is just one output from CPO’s Coastal Inundation Risk Team, encouraging on-the-ground citizen science through the use of interactive visual tools.
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.
The study, published in the Journal of Scientific Reports, reveals that annual expected atmospheric river-related flood damages in the western United States could increase significantly, raising important questions for policymakers aiming to target efforts to more effectively adapt to climate change.
The Carolinas Integrated Sciences & Assessments (CISA) a NOAA RISA team, is holding a webinar on ‘December 8, 2015 to discuss the October 2015 flooding event in South Carolina.
A new paper by Lindeman et. al—supported by the Climate Program Office—performed a synthesis of science needs from coastal communities by reporting on workshops held in Florida, North Carolina, and Massachusetts. The paper, “Science Needs for Sea-Level Adaptation Planning: Comparisons among Three U.S. Atlantic Coastal Regions,” was published online in the journal of Coastal Management on October 14, 2015.
