Climate Resilience Maps Video (Louisiana Sea Grant and Pointe-au-Chien Indian Tribe project)
This story, featured in the 2022 NOAA Science Report, describes how Louisiana Sea Grant and the Pointe-au-Chien Indian Tribe worked together to create mapping tools to support decision making and resilience planning to adapt and prepare for climate change.
The Pointe-au-Chien Indian Tribe’s land, located around the Louisiana Terrebonne Basin, is vulnerable to erosion, sea level rise, and impacts of hurricanes. The work from this project, including scientific research and traditional ecological knowledge, helps support the Pointe-au-Chien Indian Tribe’s efforts to preserve their fishing community, petition for federal recognition, and plan for climate change.
WBGT Video Explainer
This short video explains the importance of NOAA’s National Weather Service Wet Bulb Globe Temperature (WBGT) forecasts, featured in the 2022 NOAA Science Report. These forecasts, operationalized in June 2022, help us make decisions about preparing for heat. Heat is one of the leading weather-related killers in the U.S. The WBGT forecast tool is used by many different groups of people to decide when to take precautions and avoid the heat.
