NOAA - Predicting Climate Threats

Partner
National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration

Challenge Questions
Can we determine which climate-change related threat a particular town/city/region/neighborhood is most at risk of being affected by?
• “Combine different climate-related datasets (drought prediction models, sea level rise, river forecasts, extreme weather, food shortages, etc.) to determine standardized risk levels for each type of threat for each zip code (or other regional breakdown).”

Data
Various climate-related datasets
