“From using machine learning to develop critical atmospheric datasets to creating an experimental system for rapidly assessing causes of extreme events, these new awards will expedite climate science discoveries and build the library of resilience solutions needed to protect all sectors of our economy and environment.”
The successful community science campaign leveraged NOAA leadership and scientific rigor with the additional organization of local community and government groups to compile a heat dataset that can be used to minimize extreme heat risk in cities across the country.
