Our Changing Precipitation Webinar Series
A conversation on the science of precipitation and planning for the future  |  September-October 2021


NOAA's Climate Program Office and National Centers for Environmental Information, in partnership with The Water Research Foundation, are hosting a five-part webinar series on Our Changing Precipitation. The webinars will take place on Tuesday afternoons (Eastern). Join us to learn more about some of the considerations and methods for working with available precipitation science and information to advance resilience planning. 

Attendees will hear in lay terms, and help advance the conversation about, our current ability to project precipitation at temporal and spatial scales relevant for local water infrastructure decision making. You will also learn about some practical ways to take action to build resilience to climate change. 

The webinar series is an outgrowth of a prior study to improve the delivery of information resources and build resilience to  climate change in small- to medium-size communities within the United States.
