NOAA Climate Resources

The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) is the agency responsible for monitoring how the earth’s climate is changing, and how the United States is impacted by this change. Part of NOAA’s efforts include passing along that information to those being directly affected, such as community managers and the general public. This webinar will provide an overview of how interested stakeholders can obtain information from NOAA’s climate service offices.

Speakers will cover:

  • how NOAA and partners monitor national and international climate
  • regional and national climate information sources
  • regional climate extremes monitoring
