NOAA Coral Reef Watch

1998

NOAA’s Coral Reef Watch (CRW) is a decision support system providing resource managers, researchers, and other stakeholders with information on coral reef threats, primarily from climate change, to inform preparedness and response decisions. CRW uses remote sensing, modeled, and in situ biogeophysical data to offer near real-time and long-term monitoring, modeling, and reporting of conditions affecting coral reef ecosystems, especially related to coral bleaching. The information provided by the Coral Reef Watch program serves as an early warning system for coral reef changes as well as projected outlooks of coral bleaching heat stress.

Rio Grande Water Fund - Comprehensive Plan for Wildfire and Water Source Protection, New Mexico

July 2014

The Rio Grande Water Fund and The Nature Conservancy developed this Comprehensive Plan to guide forest restoration projects, and outline a funding plan to ensure New Mexico’s water security through the restoration of forested watersheds connected to the Rio Grande. The plan sets the priorities for allocating funding to areas with important water sources and high wildfire risk. With reduced snowpack and hotter summer temperatures contributing to greater risk of severe wildfire, this plan represents an adaptation strategy to both moderate wildfire risk and to protect water quality and supply for New Mexico.

Colorado Drought Mitigation and Response Plan - 2013

September 2013

Statewide drought planning for Colorado has been developed through the preparation and implementation of the Colorado Drought Mitigation and Response Plan (DMRP). This plan was prepared by the Colorado Water Conservation Board, a division of the Colorado Department of Natural Resources. In 2010, the DMRP went through a comprehensive revision. The 2013 updated plan outlines a mechanism for coordinated drought monitoring, impact assessment, response to emergency drought problems, and mitigation of long term drought impacts.
