Sea Grant programs around the nation have been helping coastal communities respond to the effects of a changing climate. Using a grant from the NOAA Climate Program Office's Coastal and Ocean Climate Applications (COCA) program, Oregon Sea Grant has released Climate Field Notes.

This publication documents the results of Sea Grant projects in seven states that used a risk-communication framework to provide that community assistance.

ABOUT OUR ORGANIZATION

Americans’ health, security and economic wellbeing are tied to climate and weather. Every day, we see communities grappling with environmental challenges due to unusual or extreme events related to climate and weather. In 2011, the United States experienced a record high number (14) of climate- and weather-related disasters where overall costs reached or exceeded $1 billion. Combined, these events claimed 670 lives, caused more than 6,000 injuries, and cost $55 billion in damages. Businesses, policy leaders, resource managers and citizens are increasingly asking for information to help them address such challenges.
