About This Wiki

CoastalClimateWiki.org is a collaborative website established in 2009 by the University of Wisconsin Sea Grant Institute. The purpose for the site is to provide a resource that links climate scientists with the outreach-based Sea Grant Climate Network. Funding for the project is through NOAA’s Climate Program Office’s Sectoral Applications Research Program (NOAA-SARP).

The site is intended to complement Sea Grant climate training materials developed with the University Corporation for Atmospheric Research (UCAR) Cooperative Program for Operational Meteorology, Education and Training (COMET®) program. It is intended to be a continuous repository of current climate information and resources for scientifically sound outreach.

How to participate

This wiki is open to all Sea Grant and NOAA partners involved in climate research, outreach and education. Once registered and approved, you will be free to add, delete and revise resources on the website. Fill out the form at http://coastalclimatewiki.org/register.aspx. You will need to provide your name, e-mail address, username and password. After approval from a website administrator, you will be free to create new wiki entries as well as edit existing content. The power of the website is the collective sum of the input from all participants.

New Educational Module

As coastal communities confront intensified storm surges, flooding and a host of other impacts as a result of the Earth’s changing climate, a multimedia self-guided educational module on coastal climate change is now available. The material is a project of the Wisconsin Sea Grant College Program, University Corporation for Atmospheric Research’s (UCAR) COMET® program, and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s Climate Program Office’s Sectoral Applications Research Program (NOAA-SARP). Users will need to register prior to taking the course, but registration is free and easy.
