Introduction to NASA Resources for Climate Change Applications

Start Date:
Sept. 29, 2021
End Date:
Oct. 6, 2021
This two-part, introductory webinar series will provide an overview of NASA resources for monitoring climate change and its impacts. The webinar will define the terminology and the role of Earth observations in climate change assessment, and then provide an overview of NASA climate models suitable for emissions policy, impacts, risk, and resilience applications.
Targeted Audience:
This training is primarily intended for local, state, federal, and international entities, including public and private sector organizations, wanting to integrate NASA Earth observations and modeled data for considerations into their climate change-related work in different sectors. The training will introduce the data, tools, and knowledge needed to manage climate-related risks and opportunities.
Expected Outcomes:
After participating in the training, attendees will be able to: • Explain the difference between weather and climate • Recognize the main components relevant to climate change decision making • Identify how Earth observations are used in climate change assessment • Summarize different types of climate information across time scales • Discuss how models can be used for climate change adaptation planning
