Urban Heat Island Maps

Timely information for people and communities who are working to address local concerns about heat health.

The Urban Heat Island Community of Practice Webinar Series Concludes With "Prioritize and Integrate Heat Planning". 10/28/2021 3:00 PM - 4:30 PM

The Urban Heat Island Community of Practice Webinar Series Concludes With "Prioritize and Integrate Heat Planning".

Join us October 28th at 3:00 PM EST

The National Integrated Heat Health Information System (NIHHIS) and its partners are hosting a webinar series to to feature community case studies on what happens after Urban Heat Island mapping campaigns are conducted. The seventh and final webinar of the series, "Prioritize and Integrate Heat Planning", will take place on October 28th at 3:00 PM EST and will highlight examples of innovative cities that have worked to address chronic and acute heat risk across their network to improve heat planning efforts. This 90 minute session features researchers and city officials who will explore the current state of heat planning and how they approach integrating heat mitigation and adaptation across plans and initiatives. 

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.

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).
