Urban Heat Island Community of Practice Webinar Series continues with "Green Cooling Infrastructure" 9/30/2021 3:00 PM - 4:00 PM

Urban Heat Island Community of Practice Webinar Series continues with "Green Cooling Infrastructure"

The National Integrated Heat Health Information System (NIHHIS) and its partners are hosting a webinar series to feature case studies on what happens after communities conduct their urban heat island mapping campaigns. On September 30th at 3PM EDT, the fifth of the series, "Green Cooling Infrastructure" will take place and will feature communities that have implemented solutions to obtain heat resilience through green infrastructure. The session will highlight case studies from Philadelphia and Pawtucket and explore how they were able to implement green infrastructure, and by doing so, strengthen community cohesion and resilience. The intersection with environmental justice, public health, crime reduction, and equitable approaches to improvements that benefit residents will be threaded throughout the webinar.

CPO Funds University of Vermont Extreme Heat Project 16 August 2021

CPO Funds University of Vermont Extreme Heat Project

The project will build on outcomes from NOAA's community-led field campaigns, which have helped engage the Burlington community and have produced critical hyperlocal temperature information. But cities, and Vermont's smaller cities and communities in particular, need more tools and resources to help them determine the most effective and efficient solutions tailored to their needs.

The National Integrated Heat Health Information System (NIHHIS) and its partners are hosting a webinar series to feature community case studies on what happens after Urban Heat Island mapping campaigns are conducted. The first webinar of the series, “Exploring the Heat Hazard”, will take place on July 29th at 2PM EDT and will highlight the range of experience of heat across the US. Key discussions will include a variety of methods and approaches to measure heat, from satellites, mobile transects, stationary observations, to wearable sensors. Speakers for this event include Jen Runkle (NC State University), Cameron Lee (Kent State University), and Brian Garcia (Warning Coordination Meteorologist, NOAA/NWS), with moderation by Noura Randle (NOAA/CPO).

NOAA’s Climate Program Office awards over $1 million to improve climate information, services for extreme heat resilience 29 June 2021

NOAA’s Climate Program Office awards over $1 million to improve climate information, services for extreme heat resilience

Five new projects will build on outcomes from NOAA’s community-led urban heat mapping campaigns

The projects will support decision making in city neighborhoods grappling with inequitably distributed impacts from the deadliest weather-related risk in the United States—extreme heat.

Urban Heat Island Community of Practice webinar series continues with “Examining Structural and Physical Infrastructure”

Urban Heat Island Community of Practice webinar series continues with “Examining Structural and Physical Infrastructure”

On September 13th at 3PM EDT, the fourth of the NIHHIS webinar series, "Structural and Physical Infrastructure", will take place highlighting communities that have implemented solutions to make their built environment cooler and more resilient to heat. Presentations will provide an overview of how cool roofs and solar-reflective walls work and the multitude of benefits they provide. The session will provide resources and suggestions for participants just getting started thinking about which cool solutions in the built environment can be part of their portfolio of actions to mitigate urban heat risk. Learn more about the webinars and register here
