2022 NIHHIS-CAPA Urban Heat Island Mapping Campaign Application Now Open

2022 NIHHIS-CAPA Urban Heat Island Mapping Campaign Application Now Open

Apply by January 14th to be part of the next cohort of cities to map their urban heat islands.

The National Integrated Heat Health Information System (NIHHIS) and CAPA Strategies are now accepting applications from organizations interested in participating in the 2022 cohort of Urban Heat Island (UHI) mapping campaigns. For the past four years, over three dozen cities across the U.S. have participated in the UHI campaign program to map the hottest parts of their communities. Cities in 11 states participated in the 2021 campaign, which finished data collection in September. Mapping reports will be released on a rolling basis through December. 

NOAA will provide funding to CAPA Strategies to support campaigns in approximately 8-10 communities in 2022. Additionally, there are three new features planned for the upcoming year's campaigns:

1. Additional monitoring products will be piloted in a few cities. While the standard campaigns provide a good snapshot of how temperatures vary in a city/county on a hot day, adding stationary sensors to the campaign can provide a longitudinal look at how these spatial patterns also change over time under varying weather conditions. 

2. Environmental Justice will be another factor considered when prioritizing applications, as the UHI mapping program is now a covered program under the Biden Administration's Justice40 Initiative. The campaign cities will track and report on the allocation of benefits to Environmental Justice (EJ) communities. 

3. The campaigns will be open to global cities for the first time. For the 2022 mapping season, 1-2 campaigns will be selected from cities outside of the United States. We are partnering with the Global Heat Health Information Network (GHHIN) to reach communities in other countries. 

Applications for support are due by 5PM Eastern Time on January 14th, 2022. Applicants will be notified of the outcome by early February. 

Learn more about the campaigns and how to apply.

NOAA and Partners to Release Urban Heat Island Mapping Results 12/14/2021 2:30 PM - 4:00 PM

NOAA and Partners to Release Urban Heat Island Mapping Results

Register today for the December 14th Mapping Results Webinar

The 2021 Urban Heat Island (UHI) mapping campaigns occured in eleven states across the US this summer, and cities are already planning ways that they can use their reports to inform decision makers and implement cooling solutions. To reflect on the 4th year of UHI mapping, NOAA's National Integrated Heat Health Information System (NIHHIS) and CAPA Strategies will host a 90 minute webinar on December 14th at 2:30PM EST. The webinar will include an overview of the 2021 campaign cities, presentations from four of the campaigns, and a discussion and Q&A between the campaigns. Register for the webinar here. 

Public Comment Requested: OSHA Heat Injury and Illness Prevention Rule 9 November 2021

Public Comment Requested: OSHA Heat Injury and Illness Prevention Rule

The public comment period closes on December 27th, 2021.

OSHA is interested in obtaining information about hazardous heat in the workplace, interventions and controls used to prevent heat illness, and diverse perspectives and expertise on topics including heat stress thresholds, heat acclimatization planning, and exposure monitoring. Recommendations should account for indoor and outdoor work environments and businesses of all different sizes.

Open Survey to Influence NASA Satellite Mission 6 October 2021

Open Survey to Influence NASA Satellite Mission

Urban Heat observations are planned

NASA JPL, in coordination with RTI International, is undertaking a study to inform the applications, information access, and product development of a next generation, global mission, called Surface Biology and Geology (SBG). SBG is envisioned to capture data in the VSWIR (hyperspectral) and TIR (multispectral, 5 bands 8-12um, 1 band in Mid IR).

If you are passionate about addressing the threat of urban heat, then NASA wants to hear from you how SBG can support your work! Participation in the study has been extended to October 22nd.

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.
