2019 CPO ESSM Workshop: “Climate Research to Enhance Resilience to Extreme Heat”

November 18, 2019 – November 19, 2019 all-day
DoubleTree by Hilton
Silver Spring (MD)

This year’s workshop will focus on extreme heat, one of the climate risk areas, to facilitate in-depth discussions. The workshop will focus on the following questions:

  • What are the most critical problems for decision makers when it comes to the impacts of extreme heat on air quality, water resources, environmental quality, agriculture, energy, transportation, public health, and coastal ocean resources?

  • What climate information and Earth system modeling capabilities are required for addressing those problems?

  • What capabilities already exist, especially in terms of observing, monitoring, understanding of the forcing and mechanisms, modeling, prediction and application products?

  • What are the gaps and opportunities for further research and engagement?
