This week, NOAA announced a new pilot project, “Building Knowledge to Support Equitable Climate Resilience,” which includes a $150,000 NOAA investment in FY22 and in-kind services from partners at the Cooperative Institute for Research to Operations in Hydrology through the University of Alabama, the University of Minnesota, and the Upper Mississippi River Basin Association.  The project seeks to better understand how the river is likely to respond to changing climate conditions and to engage vulnerable communities along the river to enhance their climate resiliency.
