Coastal and Ocean Climate Applications (COCA)

Coastal and Ocean Climate Applications (COCA): Supporting Resilient Coastal Communities in a Changing Climate
FY18 COCA and RISA Partnerships on Coastal Climate Research and Extension

NOAA’s Coastal and Ocean Climate Applications (COCA) program competitively selected two new projects in FY18 for a total of $800,000 over two years.

To support NOAA’s vision of resilient ecosystems, communities, and economies, the Coastal and Ocean Climate Applications (COCA) program supports interdisciplinary research where scientists work with coastal decision-makers, resource managers, and stakeholders to address weather- and climate- related challenges. The goal is to support coastal decision making in a changing climate.

International Research and Applications (IRAP)

International Research and Applications Project (IRAP) Announces New FY18 Projects

In order to inform planning and prevention focused on weather and climate-sensitive health risks to U.S. economic, development, scientific and safety interests at home and abroad, NOAA’s International Research and Applications Project (IRAP) selected six new two-year projects following a highly competitive funding competition, totaling $1.5 million. These awards focus on the subseasonal and seasonal timescale, and directly support the work of 33 people (including scientists, staff, postdocs and grad students) and 13 institutions. In addition, these projects advance the work of over 20 collaborating institutions concerned with climate and health at the local, national and international levels.

Sectoral Applications Research (SARP)

Extreme Events Preparedness, Planning, and Adaptation Within the Water Sector

NOAA’s Sectoral Applications Research Program (SARP) is announcing (a) five new awards for its competition focusing on “Extreme Events Preparedness, Planning, and Adaptation Within the Water Sector” totaling $867,651 and (b) three new awards for the Coping with Drought Initiative which supports the National Integrated Drought Information System totaling $507,000.

Read the Program Announcement

NOAA’s Climate Program Office (CPO), a part of NOAA’s Office of Oceanic and Atmospheric Research (OAR), has awarded $27.7 million for 87 new projects. The projects, ranging from advancing the understanding of Arctic sea ice variability to building resilience to extreme events, will be conducted by universities and other research institutions, alongside other federal agencies in close collaboration with NOAA.

The new projects are designed to improve our ability to describe our changing environment; to advance understanding, modeling, and prediction of the Earth system; and to foster effective decision making. Some anticipated outcomes include innovative approaches toward drought communications; the assessment of climate, health, and migration in the Pacific Islands; improved predictions of wildfires and assessments of their impacts; and an improved understanding of air-sea interactions.

The funds will be distributed over the life of the projects. All awards were selected in an open, competitive process. With these new awards, CPO expands the breadth and scope of NOAA’s climate research, products, and services, and offers opportunities for NOAA to collaborate with outside experts and other stakeholders.

“CPO’s mission is to foster the application of climate science, assessments, decision support research, outreach, education, and more to understand Earth’s climate system and assist in risk management and adaptation efforts,” said Wayne Higgins, Director of the Climate Program Office. “Now, as a result of the new grants, our scientists will continue to better understand Earth’s climate system, study the impacts of extreme-weather events, improve models, and assess climate impacts in order to inform decision-makers and build more resilient communities for the public.”

CPO manages competitive research programs that fund climate science and observations, modeling improvements, assessments, decision-support research, transition of research into operational services, and capacity-building activities in four complementary areas: observations and monitoring; process understanding and analysis; modeling, predictions, and projections; and societal interactions for informed decision making. While each program area has its own focus, together they demonstrate NOAA’s commitment to advancing integrated climate research and enhancing society’s ability to plan and respond to climate variability and climate change over different timescales.

ABOUT OUR ORGANIZATION

Americans’ health, security and economic wellbeing are tied to climate and weather. Every day, we see communities grappling with environmental challenges due to unusual or extreme events related to climate and weather. In 2017, the United States experienced a record-tying 16 climate- and weather-related disasters where overall costs reached or exceeded $1 billion. Combined, these events claimed 362 lives, and had significant economic effects on the areas impacted, costing more than $306 billion. Businesses, policy leaders, resource managers and citizens are increasingly asking for information to help them address such challenges.
