Urban Heat Island Maps

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

NIHHIS is Hiring a Data Scientist 25 June 2022

NIHHIS is Hiring a Data Scientist

Join our Team

NIHHIS is seeking a talented data scientist to help us develop new analyses, tools, visualizations, and products for heat and health applications. Previous examples of such tools include the Climate and Health Monitor and Outlook, which is now operationalized at CDC as the Heat and Health Tracker.

 

ARSET Training - Measuring Urban Heat Islands and Constructing Heat Vulnerability Indices 8/2/2022 - 8/11/2022

ARSET Training - Measuring Urban Heat Islands and Constructing Heat Vulnerability Indices

Provided by NASA and NIHHIS

Once Urban Heat Islands have been mapped, incorporating socioeconomic data pertaining to population, demographics, and health information into heat vulnerability indices (HVI) can help guide interventions to manage heat related risks to public health. This four-part, advanced webinar will build on ARSET’s urban heat island training held in November 2020 with hands-on exercises for participants to measure UHI and construct HVIs for their areas of interest.

This webinar series is a collaboration between NASA’s Applied Remote Sensing Training Program (ARSET) and the National Integrated Heat Health Information System (NIHHIS).

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).
