Researchers to Help Decision Makers Prepare for Hazards and Extreme Events

The California-Nevada Applications Program (CNAP) at Scripps Institution of Oceanography was awarded a 5-year $3 million grant to utilize their understandings of climate risks to inform decision makers in California and Nevada to prepare, plan and adapt for weather hazards and extreme events. CNAP is one of eleven teams under the Regional Integrated Sciences and Assessments (RISA) Program at the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), who granted the award. With this grant, CNAP plans to focus on the effects of climate-driven hazards and extreme events on natural, water and coastal resources.

Four CNAP researchers are affiliated with the Center for Climate Change Impacts and Adaptation: Dan Cayan, Sasha Gershunov, Julie Kalansky and Amanda Sheffield.
