Applications to run a Heat Watch community science urban heat island (UHI) mapping campaigns in 2021 have been reviewed, and decisions have been shared. Applicants are being asked to confirm participation. As they do, we will post the confirmed communities here. Please note that this activity is still pending availability of funds, as we have not yet received our final fiscal year 2021 budget allocation for this line of work.
2021 NIHHIS-CAPA Mapping Cohort
A formal announcement of the 2021 cohort will be issued on this web site and via the Heat Beat once we confirm all communities and funding.
