I'd like to add to this that Adrienne Antoine at NOAA is also looking for needs assessments on sea level rise for the National Climate Assessment. You may want to contact her - and other network folks, if you have any to add…"
Have any of you been involved or know about needs assessment in you state or region, on climate change adaptation. I am trying to evaluate different processes for undertaking a full needs assessment so if you have an example or case studies, especially of those done at a larger scale, like at a state level, please let me know. I'm looking for specific examples of those that either took place recently or are ongoing. Thanks, VickyMaryland Sea Grant ExtensionSee More
NOAA’s Climate Prediction Center announced today that a below-normal hurricane season is most likely for the Eastern Pacific this year. The outlook calls for a 55 percent probability of a below-normal season, a 35 percent probability of a near-normal season and a 10 percent probability of an above-normal season.
New findings reveal that the U.S. shoreline -- from Virginia to Florida -- has been uplifted by more than 210 feet, meaning less ice melted than expected. This is big news for scientists who use the coastline to predict future sea-level rise.
