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).

Global Change Biology, Journal

Global Change Biology (GCB) publishes research related to the interface between all aspects of current environmental change and biological systems, including rising tropospheric GHG concentrations, climate change, loss of biodiversity, and eutrophication.   Studies may be experimental, observational or theoretical, and may concern aquatic or terrestrial and managed or natural environments.   GCB concentrates on primary research articles, but operates a flexible policy regarding other submissions, which include Technical Papers, Mini-Reviews and Opinion Articles.

Transportation and Climate Change Clearinghouse (TCCC)

The Department of Transportation's (DOT) Transportation and Climate Change Clearinghouse (TCCC) aims to serve as a one-stop source of information on transportation and climate change issues. It is intended for use by the transportation community, including all levels of government, private industry,  and non-profits, and provides a forum to share information, learn about new research, and understand practices and approaches that are being used to address the linkages between transportation and climate change.

Maryland Coastal Atlas

The Coastal Atlas is an online mapping and planning tool that allows state and local decision-makers to visually analyze and explore data for coastal and ocean planning activities. The site provides shoreline mapping data for shoreline and flood planning in Maryland. The maps are based on erosion, storm inundation and sea level rise data developed from fifty years of observations, and display future shoreline positions up to fifty years in the future. The data available through the Coastal Atlas includes physical characteristics, human uses and ecological resources.

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.

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.
