NOAA has released a report that estimates global mean sea level rise over the next century based on a comprehensive synthesis of existing scientific literature. Scientists have very high confidence (greater than 90% chance) that global mean sea level will rise at least 8 inches (0.2 meter) and no more than 6.6 feet (2.0 meters) by 2100.
Judah Cohen, MAPP-funded researcher and director of seasonal forecasting for Atmospheric and Environmental Research (AER), a Verisk Analytics company, was featured in a Q&A post on the Washington Post's Capital Weather Gang blog.
NOAA is looking for an innovative leader to serve as the Director for our Climate Program Office (CPO). Highly qualified candidates will have a combination of strong scientific credentials, experience leading large scientific programs, and a proven ability to collaborate with diverse climate stakeholders.
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.
