To help decision makers better prepare for and respond to climate-related impacts and extreme events, CPO’s Sectoral Applications Research Program (SARP) will fund six new two-year projects in FY16 for a total of $1.4 million
Farmers, ranchers, and water resource managers will now have more time to prepare for potentially damaging drought conditions thanks to a new early warning product now available online.
Experts from NOAA, USGS, and FEMA will introduce three related data sets on NOAA’s Water Resources Dashboard that can help utility managers and planners better understand flood risks by looking at precipitation data and river levels.
Driven by feedback from water resource managers, federal agencies and others, NOAA and partners have developed the Water Resources Dashboard: a one-stop website for relevant water data on drought, flooding, precipitation, climate and other measures.
NOAA's Climate Program Office released its FY15 Annual Report on March 11, 2016. The report gives an overview of CPO's achievements in FY15 and highlights the great work done by the Office's Divisions and Programs to advance scientific understanding of climate and improve society's ability to plan and respond to a changing climate.
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.
