The NOAA Climate Program Office’s Sectoral Applications Research Program (SARP) created a story map to describe how NOAA research is trying to better understand atmospheric rivers, their impacts on communities, and forecast them.
Identifying and understanding critical thresholds for extreme weather events is key for communities to develop effective adaptation strategies.
This document exemplifies a public-private collaboration between CPO and the American Planning Association to help communities incorporate weather and climate information into municipal planning.
A study funded in part by CPO’s Sectoral Applications Research Program and published in the Journal of the American Water Resources Association developed an improved reconstruction of the Columbia River streamflow.
