This story map describes the NOAA RISA program and highlights success stories from teams within the RISA Network.
In this webinar, the National Weather Service and the RISA Program present stories about researchers, forecasters, and fire managers working together to improve public and wildland firefighter safety.
CIRC RISA has compiled a comprehensive report detailing what they've learned and accomplished from 2010 to 2017, providing a kind of mini climate assessment of the Pacific Northwest.
Stony Brook University scientists have identified an influential force in the tropical stratosphere that could help better forecast storm tracks and their extreme impacts, like future winter "bomb cyclones".
