FEMA Severe Repetitive Loss Program

The Severe Repetitive Loss (SRL) grant program provides funding to states, territories, and local and federally-recognized Indian tribal governments to reduce or eliminate the long-term risk of flood damage to severe repetitive loss (SRL) of structures insured under the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP). Eligible activities under this program include: acquisition and relocation of at-risk structures and the conversion of property to open space; elevation of existing structures to the Base Flood Elevation (BFE) or an ABFE Advisory Base Flood Elevation (ABFE) or higher (for the SRL program Mitigation Reconstruction is only permitted when traditional elevation cannot be implemented); minor physical localized flood control projects; and dry-flood proofing (historic properties only).

Applied Climate Information System (ACIS)

The Applied Climate Information System (ACIS) is a climate data management system developed and maintained by the NOAA Regional Climate Centers (RCCs). It is intended to manage the complex flow of information from climate data collectors to the end users of climate information. ACIS brings historical climate information and near real-time data together, pulling from multiple datasets across the Regional Climate Centers (RCCs), to assess historical climate trends, enhance daily operational decisions, and assist with climate-dependent activities.

TRB Research In Progress (RiP) Database

The Transportation Research Board's (TRB) Research In Progress (RiP) Database and data-entry system allows users in the U. S. Department of Transportation (DOT), state DOTs, University Transportation Centers (UTCs) and other USDOT-funded universities to add, modify, and delete information on their current research projects. To see a list of climate change (both mitigation and adaptation) related research, enter "climate change" in the Keyword field. Project descriptions provide contact information for research team members.

Nature Conservancy Coastal Resilience Program

A program from The Nature Conservancy (TNC), Coastal Resilience is dedicated to providing information to communities, planners, businesses and policy makers to help them integrate sea-level rise and coastal hazards into their decision-making, and mitigate both community and natural resources vulnerabilities. The program consists of an approach, a web mapping tool, and a network of practitioners around the world supporting hazard mitigation and climate adaptation planning.

Energy and Environment Legislation Tracking Device

The National Conference of State Legislatures tracks state energy and environment legislation that has been introduced in the fifty states and the District of Columbia. Both climate change mitigation and adaptation searches are supported. The tracker contains bills that have been enacted, as well as those that are pending or have failed. NCSL indicates their database is updated and summarized bi-weekly. .

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).
