You are invited to join the Climate Resilience Toolkit team and partners for three new learning sessions associated with tools and information on the Water Resources Dashboard. The Dashboard, a user-driven and dynamic page on the Climate Resilience Toolkit, provides access to maps and data that help water resource managers and urban planners monitor the potential for extreme precipitation and drought in their regions. Several water and planning organizations have contributed to the dashboard, including the American Planning Association, the American Water Works Association, the Association of Metropolitan Water Agencies, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, Water Environment Federation, Water Environment Research Foundation, and the Environmental Protection Agency.
To supplement this joint effort, the Toolkit team is holding a series of learning sessions to provide scientific and practical, applied information about the datasets on the dashboard. These sessions will be initially broadcast using GoToWebinar on November 9, 16, and 20. If you are unable to attend a session you can find a recording of it on the Dashboard several days after the scheduled session. You will need to register for each session by using the registration link below each webinar description. —————————- November 9, 2017 1:00 – 1:30 p.m. ET – Historical Weather Observations Hourly Precipitation, Daily Summary Observations and Daily Normals NOAA’s National Centers for Environmental Information (NCEI) is responsible for preserving, monitoring, assessing, and providing public access to the Nation’s treasure of climate and historical weather data and information.
