CISA Integrating Climate Science & Decision Making in the Carolinas
The CISA team creates story maps to share information about climate and its impacts in the Carolinas with stakeholders, decision makers, resource managers, and local interest groups.
In 2017, CISA began providing support to the State Climate Office of North Carolina to expand the Coastal Carolinas DEWS Coastal Zone Fire Risk Assessment project conducted in 2014-2015. Project goals include improving the monitoring of soil moisture in coastal areas; enhancing the Fire Weather Intelligence Portal to better address coastal fire conditions and risks; assessing coastal zone fire risk indicators; and helping resource managers use new coastal zone monitoring data and information for drought management and planning decisions.
