Two New Climate Tools

Earlier today, Security Notes reported on a new interactive storm surge map from EPA’s Climate Ready Water Utilities initiative.  There are two additional climate- related tools that you may also be interested in exploring:

Scenario-Based Projected Changes Map:  This online map provides easy access to localized scenarios of projected changes in annual total precipitation, precipitation intensity, annual average temperature, 100-year storm events, and sea-level rise from EPA’s Climate Resilience Evaluation and Awareness Tool.  To explore local climate change projection data across the United States, simply zoom in on your location of interest or type a location into the search field of the map.  Climate change projection data within this map is provided by grid cell, illustrated as a square grid with 1/2-degree resolution, approximately 32 X 32 miles, for the United States.  Explore the map on EPA’s website.

EPA Water Utility Climate Resilience Support Project:  EPA is initiating a nationwide effort to promote an understanding of climate risk and adaptation options within the water sector.  By working with a diverse set of individual utilities in a collaborative process, EPA will assist 20 water and wastewater utilities in conducting comprehensive climate related risk assessments using our Climate Resilience Evaluation and Awareness Tool (CREAT). The assessments will identify utility-level adaptation strategies for implementation to bolster climate readiness and resilience.  A list of confirmed participating utilities can be found on EPA’s website.
