Setting operational thresholds for Heat Early Warning Systems 6/2/2020 11:00 AM - 5/26/3020 12:30 PM

Setting operational thresholds for Heat Early Warning Systems

GHHIN Masterclass Series

Defining heatwave events and optimal public health heat alerting systems remains complex and challenging. Should they be impact-based, and what information is needed to make them so? If this information is unavailable, are climatological approaches alone effective? This masterclass will address these questions and provide insight to some of the practical and operational considerations that both meteorological services and public health agencies may need to take when either developing or improving existing heat health thresholds for action.

About Us

The NIHHIS is an integrated system that builds understanding of the problem of extreme heat, defines demand for climate services that enhance societal resilience, develops science-based products and services from a sustained climate science research program, and improves capacity, communication, and societal understanding of the problem in order to reduce morbidity and mortality due to extreme heat. The NIHHIS is a jointly developed system by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.
