More than 10 CPO staff, research team members, and interns will attend and present on climate-related topics at the 2023 American Meteorological Society (AMS) meeting. The presentations represent a total of 19 abstracts. As leaders in the field, some of the staff will lead sessions and town halls while others are supporting authors. See the full list of CPO presentations at AMS below.
Showcasing the Heat.gov portal, housed under NOAA's CPO, provides a one-stop hub on heat and health for the U.S. and is a priority of President Biden’s National Climate Task Force and its Interagency Working Group on Extreme Heat.
The Urban Heat Island Mapping Campaign program is a signature program of NIHHIS, and the results from the mapping campaigns can be used to inform decision makers and implement cooling solutions across the US.
This methodology, extended from the original Plan Integration for Resilience Scorecard (PIRS) approach, enables communities to understand their net impact on heat resilience planning and policies to see where they are reducing heat and also where they may be adding to the problem.
NOAA's NIHHIS along with partners at NESDIS's data visualization lab and NOAA's Science on a Sphere have developed a virtual reality experience that will be highlighted by the US Government at the US Center during COP27.
