The National Integrated Heat Health Information System (NIHHIS) and its partners are hosting a webinar series to feature community case studies on what happens after Urban Heat Island mapping campaigns are conducted. The first webinar of the series, “Exploring the Heat Hazard”, will take place on July 29th at 2PM EDT and will highlight the range of experience of heat across the US. Key discussions will include a variety of methods and approaches to measure heat, from satellites, mobile transects, stationary observations, to wearable sensors. Speakers for this event include Jen Runkle (NC State University), Cameron Lee (Kent State University), and Brian Garcia (Warning Coordination Meteorologist, NOAA/NWS), with moderation by Noura Randle (NOAA/CPO).
