2020 Heat Watch Campaigns Progress for Aug. 11th

Our thirteen NOAA-funded cities are progressing through their summer campaigns, with most cities already having completed traverses and moving on to the analysis phase. Our Houston campaign - the largest this season - has also been receiving significant media attention! Links below.

Seattle/King County: Due to unseasonably low temperatures throughout the summer of 2019, this campaign was unable to run last year as intended. Maintaining project communication over the last year, the City of Seattle, King County, and project volunteers were able to pull off a successful campaign on the hottest day of 2020 yet! Congrats, team. 

New Orleans: Several campaign teams in New Orleans are examining the surface temperatures of various built environment materials by using FLIR thermal imagery cameras attached to their smartphones. Using the platform ISeeChange, participants are able to share their findings and impressions from the activity with fellow campaigners and other platform users.

NOAA’s Climate Program Office Awards $48.7M to Advance Climate and Decision Support Science, Build Community Resilience 6 October 2020

NOAA’s Climate Program Office Awards $48.7M to Advance Climate and Decision Support Science, Build Community Resilience

“From using machine learning to develop critical atmospheric datasets to creating an experimental system for rapidly assessing causes of extreme events, these new awards will expedite climate science discoveries and build the library of resilience solutions needed to protect all sectors of our economy and environment.”

The successful community science campaign leveraged NOAA leadership and scientific rigor with the additional organization of local community and government groups to compile a heat dataset that can be used to minimize extreme heat risk in cities across the country.

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.
