This is the authoritative text for planners on the issue of urban heat island resilience, and it was funded by the Extreme Heat Risk Initiative of CPO.
Targeted outreach tool provides information on water supplies and drought potential for a crucial watershed.
This dataset and tool are directly responsive to requests Dr. Spinrad heard from health practitioners at a NOAA Climate and Equity Roundtable event held in October 2021.
A new study, part of NOAA's Drought Task Force IV research, shows the leading cause of the rapid increase of wildfires over the western U.S. is the rapid increase of surface air vapor pressure deficit.
The video includes interviews with those whose livelihoods are impacted by the drought and discusses how rising temperatures are bringing aridification and a “new normal” to the region.
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.
