Pacific Islands Climate Outlooks Catalog

The Pacific Islands Climate Outlooks Catalog is a gateway to a broad range of climate data and outlooks that are relevant to the Pacific Islands region.

PacificIslandsClimate.org

The PacificIslandsClimate.org (PIKO) website is a gateway to a broad range of information related to climate in the Pacific Islands. PIKO includes summaries of programs, projects, and activities, as well as data, information products, and services.

Southern Climate Impacts Planning Program Data Products

The NOAA-funded Southern Climate Impacts Planning Program (SCIPP) has developed a range of experimental and prototype tools to support climate-related decision-making and planning. These datasets and tools are designed to help increase resiliency and preparedness for weather and climate extremes now and in the future across the Southern-Central United States.

NOAA Pacific Islands Fisheries Service Center Publications

A regularly updated database of reports, theses, working papers, and more written by PIFSC staff and collaborators.

Coastal Climate Adaptation Resources

An archive of adaptation resources such as guidebooks, tools, and state and local plans as well as a blog about coastal concerns by NOAA's Coastal Service Center. Users can parse resources by states or category.

NOAA Sectoral Applications Research Program funding

 

Climate Change and Marine Protected Areas

Information on Marine Protected Areas and climate change, including products from the MPA Federal Advisory Committee, training information, and program links.

Climate Normals

Climate normals are the average values of meteorological parameters -- such as temperature, precipitation, frost/freeze data, and snowfall data -- over 30-year spans. The climate normals data help describe typical climate conditions for a given place and time of year, and are used as a baseline to which current conditions can be compared.

In this activity, students investigate aspects of change in the biosphere of California's Central Valley. Analyzing data over both space and time, they begin to tie together some of the causes and effects of a variable and changing climate. The valley serves as a model environment that includes riverine, wetland, rural-agricultural, and urban regimes all with high water-dependencies and susceptibility to drought.

In this activity for undergraduates, students explore the CLIMAP (Climate: Long-Range Investigation, Mapping and Prediction) model results for differences between the modern and the Last Glacial Maximum (LGM) and discover the how climate and vegetation may have changed in different regions of the Earth based on scientific data.
