Climate Change and Sentinel Monitoring in the Long Island Sound Ecosystem
The Climate Change and Sentinel Monitoring in the Long Island Sound Ecosystem Program (formerly the Sentinel Monitoring for Climate Change Program) is a multidisciplinary scientific approach to provide early warning of climate change impacts to Long Island Sound ecosystems, species and processes to facilitate appropriate and timely management decisions and adaptation responses. These warnings will be based on assessments of climate related changes to a set of indicators/sentinels recommended by technical advisory work groups.
Climate Change in the Northeast
This US EPA website describes the climate impacts and adaptation examples of climate change in the northeast region.
Climate Ready Estuaries
The US EPA Climate Ready Estuaries program works with the National Estuary Programs and the coastal management community to assess climate change vulnerabilities, develop and implement adaptation strategies, and engage and educate stakeholders. This website provides examples to help coastal managers and provides technical guidance and assistance about climate change adaptation.
Climate Stewards Education Project
The NOAA Climate Stewards Education Project (CSEP) is part of NOAA’s portfolio of activities designed to strengthen ocean, climate, and atmospheric science education. CSEP increases understanding of essential climate concepts, providing educators with ready access to reliable scientific information through an array of professional development opportunities. Through direct interaction with scientists and education specialists, participants receive instruction in the use of data resources, digital tools, and other innovative technologies. Educators benefit from an active online learning community that offers collaborative space, web seminars, conference symposia, workshops, and virtual conferences. Armed with this knowledge, NOAA Climate Stewards design and implement environmentally friendly action plans to reduce the “carbon footprint” in their own communities. Educators may also be eligible for mini-grant funding ($500 to $2,500) to develop and implement a climate stewardship action plan and travel stipends to attend and present at key professional development conferences.
Coastal Hazards – Hurricane Sandy
The Science Education Resource Center at Carleton College prepared a list of resources and links for teaching about coastal hazards such as SuperStorm Sandy.
Conservationist for Kids Climate Change Issue
New York State Department of Environmental Conservation’s newsletter for youth that provides an introduction to climate change, how it affects New York State, and actions people can take to help limit climate change.
Data Resources for Educators
NOAA’s Data Resources for Educators collection is designed to help educators find NOAA and NOAA-related data resources that range from classroom ready, student-friendly interfaces to raw real-time and historical data. Data resources are available for Oceans and Freshwater, Climate, Weather and Atmosphere, Visualizations, Cryosphere, and Historical.
