New Coastal Risk Screening Tool Supports Sea Level Rise and Flood Mapping by Year, Water Level, and Elevation Dataset
Climate Central today announced the release of its global Coastal Risk Screening Tool to generate customizable, localized maps of projected sea level rise and coastal flood risks by year, water level, and elevation.
The Netherlands’ climate change adaptation strategies could be a model for the Louisiana coast. The series was produced in collaboration with WWNO New Orleans Public Radio and Climate Central, and is part of the Pulitzer Center’s Connected Coastlines reporting initiative.
Snow keeps our planet cooler, significantly affects water resources, and is a revealing indicator of climate change.
Created to propel humankind beyond the limits of Earth, Kennedy Space Center is now facing a terrestrial threat — the warming of our home planet, leading to sea level rise, erosion and catastrophic flooding — that could hinder our push to deep space.
Batteries are having a moment. A new Solutions Brief by Climate Central describes the rapid growth of battery storage capacity in the U.S., and how it can be used to reduce carbon emissions while making our power grid more resilient to extreme weather.
Portland’s trees are also playing an underappreciated role every time it rains: They’re helping us prevent major flooding and avoid erosion; they are literally holding Multnomah County together.
Climate Central examined flood risks facing NASA's space launch sites at the John F. Kennedy Space Center and Cape Canaveral Air Force Station.
New elevation data show that by midcentury frequent coastal flooding will rise higher than areas currently home to hundreds of millions of people.
