The newly formed Mid-Atlantic Regional Integrated Sciences and Assessments (MARISA) program recently launched its main website: www.MidAtlanticRISA.org

The website launch marks MARISA's web presence and formal establishment as a team of the NOAA Regional Integrated Sciences and Assessments program. MARISA focuses on building more resilient Chesapeake Bay and Mid-Atlantic communities through improved understanding of and response to climate variability and change. The website will serve as a medium of information regarding MARISA's ongoing stakeholder interactions and dataset creations. 

The Mid-Atlantic Regional Integrated Sciences and Assessments (MARISA) program was established in September 2016 through a five-year grant from NOAA.

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.
