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

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.
