New Webinar to accompany the Water Resources Dashboard on Precipitation Model Analysis and Guidance
Part 7: Precipitation “B”: Model Analysis and Guidance
Wednesday, March 29, 2017 1-1:30 p.m. ET
Climate data experts and utility practitioners will explore precipitation data through the Model Analysis and Guidance dataset on NOAA’s Water Resources Dashboard. NOAA’s Paul Iwugo will provide an overview of the maps, animation and plots from weather observations and prediction models on this dataset. Mindy Scott from Sanitation District No. 1 of Northern Kentucky will discuss how such climate data is incorporated into utility planning and monitoring the development of potential storms.

Understanding and Use of Climate and Hydrological Data on the Water Resources Dashboard
Water resource managers, city planners and the general public are witnessing changes in the climate, as well as associated impacts to our environment. To better plan for the future, the American Planning Association, American Water Works Association, Association of Metropolitan Water Agencies, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, Water Environment Federation, Water Environment & Reuse Foundation and the Water Research Foundation collaborated to create a water resources dashboard – a one-stop location for water-relevant data sets (http://toolkit.climate.gov/topics/water-resources/water-resources-dashboard).
Together, they’ve created this series of webcasts that will highlight specific datasets. Each session targets one or more datasets featuring a scientist involved in the development or application of that data set, as well as a practitioner or decision maker that uses them in their operations or future planning. Sessions include time for question and answers. The webcast recordings will be added under their respective dataset within the Dashboard for future reference.
