Rolling Announcement - NIHHIS-CAPA UHI Mapping Cities for 2021

Rolling Announcement - NIHHIS-CAPA UHI Mapping Cities for 2021

Determinations have been made regarding recommended communities for 2021 UHI mapping

Applications to run a Heat Watch community science urban heat island (UHI) mapping campaigns in 2021 have been reviewed, and decisions have been shared. Applicants are being asked to confirm participation. As they do, we will post the confirmed communities here. Please note that this activity is still pending availability of funds, as we have not yet received our final fiscal year 2021 budget allocation for this line of work.

2021 NIHHIS-CAPA Mapping Cohort

  • Raleigh & Durham, NC
  • Albuquerque, NM
  • Kansas City, MO
  • San Diego, CA
  • Atlanta, GA (Fulton & Dekalb counties)
  • New York City, NY
  • Charleston, SC
  • San Francisco, CA
  • more cities may confirmed on a rolling basis...

A formal announcement of the 2021 cohort will be issued on this web site and via the Heat Beat once we confirm all communities and funding.

New course for clinicians on climate change and human health 28 January 2021

New course for clinicians on climate change and human health

Course focuses on heat and health in urban areas in session 3

A new clinician-focused webinar series, titled "Climate Change and Human Health" organized by Project ECHO (Extension for Community Healthcare Outcomes) with contributions from several NIHHIS partners, is now open for registration.  The purpose of this 7-week course, which runs from Feb. 17 - April 7, 2021, is to help clinicians and other medical professionals better understand the ways in which climate variability and change impact human health and health care facilities. Another goal is to help clinicians become more conversant in climate science and climate-related impacts so that they may integrate climate science information into their communications with patients as well as their long-term resilience planning for their facilities.

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.”

2020 Urban Heat Island Mapping Campaign Successfully Finishes 1 September 2020

2020 Urban Heat Island Mapping Campaign Successfully Finishes

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

NIHHIS is an integrated information 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.  NIHHIS is a jointly developed system by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.
