WMO Statement on the Status of the Global Climate in 2013 Report Cover

WMO Releases Annual Status of the Global Climate Report

The dramatic impact of climate variability and climate change continued to be felt all over the world throughout 2013.The World Meteorological Organization statement on the status of the global climate in 2013 provides a snapshot of global and regional trends in weather and climate over the past year and highlights some of the year’s most significant extreme events.

This interactive conference will be geared towards networking and exchange among stakeholders and decision makers throughout the Carolina region.

This free webinar will help explain how forest managers and landowners in the Great Lakes area are adapting to climate change.

Assessing the Vulnerability of Fish Stocks in a Changing Climate

NOAA Fisheries and NOAA’s Earth Research Laboratory have finalized a new methodology to rapidly assess the vulnerability of U.S. marine stocks to a changing climate. The methodology uses existing information on climate and ocean conditions, species distributions, and species life history characteristics in order to estimate the relative vulnerability of fish stocks to potential changes in climate.

Navigating Change: Hawaii's Approach to Adaptation

A report based on the Pacific Islands Regional Climate Assessment (PIRCA) was recently presented to the President's Task Force for Climate Preparedness and Resilience. The report examines climate change impacts in Hawaii and also assesses the adaptive capacity of the Pacific Island communities.

This webinar will help determine and document what research and science stakeholders find useful to deal with a changing climate.

A short video that discusses how changing climate is affecting the population of AdÃlie penguins.

In this activity, students research various topics about ocean health, e.g. overfishing, habitat destruction, invasive species, climate change, pollution, and ocean acidification. An optional extension activity has them creating an aquatic biosphere in a bottle experiment in which they can manipulate variables.

This 3-part interactive and virtual lab activity examines the life cycle of the sea urchin, and how the increasing acidity of the ocean affects their larval development.
