NCAR Nested Regional Climate Model

The National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR) has created computer models to study many aspects of atmospheric and earth system phenomena. The Nested Regional Climate Model (NRCM) combines the strengths of NCAR's Weather Research and Forecasting (WRF) model and NCAR's Community Climate System Model (CCSM) into an instrument that will improve the understanding and prediction of regional climate variability and change. In particular, embedding WRF within CCSM will allow scientists to resolve processes that occur at the regional scale, as well as the influence of those processes on the large-scale climate, thereby improving the fidelity of climate change simulations and their utility for local and regional planning.

Integrated Assessment for Effective Climate Change Strategies in New York State

The “Integrated Assessment for Effective Climate Change Adaptation Strategies in New York State" project was undertaken by the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA) ClimAID science team.   The vulnerability assessment considers the effects of climate change on New York, including rising sea levels, increasing temperatures, and changing weather patterns. The project draws upon both local experience and scientific knowledge by involving numerous stakeholders in eight key sectors: agriculture, communications, ecosystems, energy, ocean coastal zones, public health, transportation, and water resources.

Coastal Zone Management Estuarine Research Reserves Project Grants

Coastal Zone Management Estuarine Research Reserves project grants are awarded to coastal states, including those that border the Great Lakes and non-continental U. S. territories, to assist in the development, acquisition, monitoring, research, education, operation and facilities construction for National Estuarine Research Reserves. These grants are provided for the purpose of creating natural field laboratories to gather data and make studies of, and educate people about the natural and human processes occurring within the estuaries of the coastal zone.

FEMA Community Assistance Program - State Support Services Element

The Federal Emergency Management Agency's (FEMA's) Community Assistance Program - State Support Services Element (CAP-SSSE) provides, through a State grant mechanism, a means to ensure that communities participating in the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) are achieving flood loss reduction goals of the NFIP. CAP-SSSE funds are to be used by States to provide technical assistance to NFIP communities, to evaluate community implementation/ performance of NFIP floodplain management activities, and to build State and community floodplain management expertise and capacity.

Community Resource Inventory - South Carolina

A community resource inventory is an online mapping atlas of the natural and cultural resources in a community, along with human dimensions information. The human dimensions information includes land parcels, urban areas, and streets and highways. For South Carolina, the Community Resource Inventory-South Carolina (CRI-SC) tool presents these data in an online map for users without traditional geographic information system capabilities. Having a detailed set of inventory maps can assist those who are interested in planning for the effects of sea-level rise in South Carolina.

Geophysical Fluid Dynamics Laboratory VisGallery

The Geophysical Fluid Dynamics Laboratory (GFDL) develops and uses mathematical models and computer simulations to improve our understanding and prediction of the behavior of the atmosphere, the oceans, and climate. The GFDL VisGallery provides animations of scientific research results to convey complex information in graphic form. Visualizations are available for climate diagnostics; climate prediction (air temperature, water flow, Arctic sea ice changes, El Nino forecasting); hurricanes (Mitch, Floyd, Isabel, 2004 season, Katrina); mesoscale dynamics; and oceans (surface temperature, surface salinity, surface speed).
