More than 10 CPO staff, research team members, and interns will attend and present and lead sessions focused on climate topics relevant to CPO’s mission at the American Meteorological Society 104th Annual Meeting.
A new hydroclimate study supported by MAPP and NIDIS finds climate change isn’t producing the expected increase in atmospheric moisture over dry regions, raising concerns about widely used climate models and their links to challenges like drought and wildfire.
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
Biden-Harris Administration invests $2 million to build tribal drought resilience through Investing in America agenda
President Biden’s Inflation Reduction Act will support NOAA’s efforts to work with tribal nations in the West with drought challenges and opportunities
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.
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.
This workshop will explore the notion that drought assessment is being outpaced by climate change, and determine the implications to drought response and adaptation.
This Special Edition Drought Status Update was issued to help answer the question, “What do the recent storms mean for drought in the West?”
