This meeting is part of the beginning of DOT engaging with NIHHIS and working more closely with NOAA on climate tools and resources for heat resilience.
The NIHHIS Heat Safety social media campaign is a federal collaboration on heat communication to raise awareness about the risk of extreme heat, and to provide audiences with information about preparedness and actions to take to prevent heat-related illnesses and death.
The NIHHIS National Meeting is an interagency effort to address heat and health across all timescales by engaging decision makers and empowering communities with the resources and network to address heat.
In March (and the beginning of April) 2023, CPO held an interview campaign that highlighted seven CPO staff scientists and CPO-funded scientists for Women’s History Month.
The award winning, NOAA-created, Washington D.C. Urban Heat Island Virtual Reality application brought together a multi-LO team to produce a cutting edge new application to teach people about urban heat in a novel format, reaching audiences at the UNFCCC COP, AMS Annual, AGU Fall, and Esri Fed GIS conferences.
