Climate information, tools, and services are developed and shared broadly to inform society’s preparedness and response efforts
The demand for NOAA’s climate information, tools, and services is increasing, as decision-makers work to prepare for the impacts of climate variability and climate change. Meeting this demand will require regular interaction between stakeholders and scientists.
Develop visualization and decision-support tools for changes in ocean temperature, coastal inundation, and sea-level at decision-relevant scales T
Integrate county-level coastal and ocean job trends data via NOAA’s Digital Coast to enable decision makers and planners to better assess the economic impacts of climate change and extreme events T
Develop methods (including economic analyses) for evaluating the effectiveness of adaptation strategies and actions, particularly for coasts, oceans, and water resources D
- Improve communication and application of NOAA’s climate information to decision makers and the public through outreach, education, training, user-friendly online resources (e.g. climate.gov), social media, tools, and other pathways T
