New publication on ensemble-based forecasting for Tropical Cyclone Isaias (2020) co-authored by Philip Orton, Principal Investigator with the Consortium for Climate Risk in the Urban Northeast (CCRUN)

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.

IRAP-funded study provides new recommendations for increasing the reach and effectiveness of heat risk education and warning messaging

This research analyzed focus group responses to better understand the context for heat health warning systems and help incorporate stakeholder needs and interests into future management.

SCIPP, a NOAA RISA team, to host a climate justice-focused webinar on Disaster Recovery and Preparedness for Communities on the Frontlines

This virtual webinar will highlight stories from community leaders and organizers in the Gulf South who are preparing their communities for future severe weather events and disruptions, even in the midst of ongoing recovery from previous disasters.

New Dashboard to Complement the Utah Hazard Planning Tool Created by Western Water Assessment, a NOAA RISA Team, Provides Resources on Historic, Current, and Future Natural Hazards in the West

The Utah Hazard Planning Dashboard was developed with input from hazard planners and providers of hazard information to share the best available information about the historical incidence, current risk and future projections of natural hazards.

New study, funded by the California-Nevada Applications Program (CNAP), a NOAA RISA team, explores climate change impact on future atmospheric river flood damages in the western U.S.

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.

Wanda I. Crespo Acevedo, Climate Adaptation Program Specialist in support of the NOAA-RISA Program in Puerto Rico, to present to FEMA on Puerto Rico’s Recovery and the Climate Crisis

The Southern Climate Impacts Planning Program (SCIPP), a NOAA RISA team, announces expansion of the Simple Planning Tool to Texas

The Simple Planning Tool for Texas Climate Hazards, previously available in Oklahoma and Arkansas, assists planners, emergency managers, and decision makers in Texas who are assessing their long-term climate risks, both historically and in the future.

Researchers from the California-Nevada Climate Applications Program, a NOAA RISA team, contribute to new article on winter wet–dry weather patterns as evidence for increasing wildfire hazard in CA

The study reveals that weather patterns are changing in a way that enhances wildfire hazard in California, while the frequency of weather patterns linked to historical floods is not diminishing. These changes exhibit the rising hazards of weather extremes in California’s present and future.

SCIPP, a NOAA RISA team, to host a webinar on Climate and Infrastructure Funding: A Conversation on Justice Opportunities and Challenges

This virtual webinar, titled Climate and Infrastructure Funding: A Conversation on Justice Opportunities and Challenges, will bring individuals together from different sectors to identify environmental justice funding and capacity-building resources for disaster resilience when implementing community-led projects.
