As climate changes, NYC prepares for massive floods
Posted on February 2, 2017 As rising sea levels continue to pose a threat to coastal regions of the U.S., low-lying but densely populated regions like New York City are rethinking their approach to the built environment.Last week, a National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration report warned that coastal regions of the U.S. look set to face a future of steadily rising sea levels. In the worst cases, parts of America could experience sea-level rises of as much as eight feet by 2100.

NOAA’s GOES-16 satellite sends first images of Earth
Posted on January 26, 2017 The release of the first images from the GOES-16 satellite is the latest step in a new age of weather satellites. It will be like high-definition from the heavens at four times the image resolution of existing GOES spacecraft. The higher resolution will allow forecasters to pinpoint the location of severe weather with greater accuracy.

NOAA News on Climate: 2016 marks three consecutive years of record warmth for the globe
Posted on January 18, 2017 The average temperature across global land and ocean surfaces in 2016 was 58.69 degrees F or 1.69 degrees F above the 20th century average. This surpassed last year’s record by 0.07 degrees F. Since the start of the 21st century, the annual global temperature record has been broken five times (2005, 2010, 2014, 2015, and 2016). Despite the cooling influence of a weak La Nina in the latter part of the year, the year ended with the third warmest December on record for the globe, with an average temperature 1.42 degrees F above the 20th century average.

NOAA awards $11.9 million to four minority serving institutions to train the next generation of scientists
Posted on September 2, 2016 NOAA’s Office of Education announced $11.9 million in grants to four lead minority serving institutions across the country. The funds will be used to educate and graduate students who pursue degree programs with applied research in NOAA mission-related scientific fields. Awards were made to Florida A&M University, Howard University, City College of New York and the University of Maryland – Eastern Shore. These institutions partnered with 24 other schools to establish four cooperative science centers. The centers will train students in earth system sciences and remote sensing technology, coastal and marine ecosystems, living marine resources and atmospheric sciences & meteorology – all core science fields for NOAA.
