Ms. Moehlenkamp attended the Palau Indigenous Knowledge Exchange to participate in traditional forms of aquaculture and navigation, exploring Indigenous coastal solutions to climate change mitigation, adaptation, resilience, and building alliances for a united Pacific.
Pacific RISA Principal Investigator Victoria Keener Speaks about Peer-to-Peer Knowledge Exchange and Participatory Scenario Planning at the ASU Center for Science and Policy Outcomes
Dr. Victoria Keener, a RISA-funded scientist, spoke on the importance of collaboration and planning in advancing climate adaptation initiatives and policies at the ASU Center for Science and Policy Outcomes.
Several new projects—including those focused on island resilience and coastal blue carbon—were highlighted during events hosted by the U.S. Center.
Pacific RISA fostered an inspiring conversation between His Excellency and representatives from Hawai’i state and local government, international consulates, NGOs, and academia.
Research supported by NOAA CPO’s Climate Variability and Predictability (CVP) program and the Modeling, Analysis, Predictions and Projections (MAPP) program has been accepted for publication in the Journal of Climate.
An upcoming NCA rollout event in Hawaii is being led by the Pacific RISA and the Pacific Islands LCC.
Research funded by CPO’s Atmospheric Chemistry, Carbon Cycle, and Climate (AC4) program was published in Nature Geosciences. The article assesses the relationship between the organic carbon content of sea water and freshly emitted sea spray aerosol in the North Atlantic as well as the coastal waters of California.
With funding from CPO’s Atmospheric Chemistry, Carbon Cycle, & Climate (AC4), researchers at the U.S. Department of Energy’s Pacific Northwest National Laboratory sought to understand why some marine stratocumulus clouds form “open cells” while others form “closed cells,” even when the background whether conditions are similar.
