Sea Level Rise Viewer

A map-based decision support tool for coastal managers and scientists to plan for different sea level rise scenarios and potential coastal flooding impacts.

Heat Index Forecasts

Heat index products are issued from the medium-range forecast function of the Hydrological Prediction Center for days 3 through 7 during the period from May 1 through September 30. With the exception of day 3, these products are based on an ensemble of model and human forecasts. Graphic plots display the cities for which the heat index forecast is interpolated, as well as shaded contours indicating the probability of the daily maximum, daily minimum, and daily mean heat index reaching or exceeding a specific threshold. 

Crop Moisture Stress Index

A measure of the effects of drought and catastrophic wetness on national crop yields for corn and soy.

FishStatJ: Software for Fishery Statistical Time Series

A free desktop-based app that provides users with access to global and regional fishery statistics

Coastal County Snapshots

Coastal County Snapshots turn complex data into easy-to-understand stories, complete with charts and graphs. Users select a coastal county of interest and the website does the rest, providing information that can help communities become more resilient to coastal hazards.

National Action Plan for Managing Freshwater Resources in a Changing Climate

A plan published by the White House Climate Change Adaptation Taskforce to help freshwater resource managers assure adequate water supplies, safeguard water quality and aquatic ecosystems, and protect human life, health and property. The plan lays out six goals for effective management: 

  • Establish a Planning Process to Adapt Water Resources Management to a Changing Climate
  • Improve Water Resources and Climate Change Information for Decision-Making
  • Strengthen Assessment of Vulnerability of Water Resources to Climate Change
  • Expand Water Use Efficiency
  • Support Integrated Water Resources Management
  • Support Training and Outreach to Build Response Capability
 

Plant Hardiness Zone Map

A map updated in 2012 to reflect the new climate normals showing which plants are most likely to thrive at a specific location. Users can quickly see what plants will grow in their area by a zip code search.

EPA WEPPCAT

A tool that provides a flexible capability for creating user-determined climate change scenarios for assessing the potential impacts of climate change on sediment loading to streams using the the U.S. Department of Agriculture's Water Erosion Prediction Project (WEPP) Model. In combination with the existing capabilities of WEPP for assessing the effectiveness of management practices, WEPPCAT also can be used to evaluate the effectiveness of strategies for managing the impacts of climate change.

Extent of Harmful Human Influences on Global Marine Ecosystems

A global dataset and map showing human impacts on oceans. Included is a study, "A Global Map of Human Impact on Marine Ecosystems."

EPA BASINS 4.0 Climate Assessment Tool

A tool that integrates geographical information, watershed data, and state-of-the-art modeling tools. Specifically, BASINS CAT provides flexible capabilities for creating climate change scenarios allowing users to quickly assess a wide range of "what if" questions about how weather and climate could affect their systems.
