Theme 3: Interdisciplinary research in support of building healthy communities

With this theme NCAS-M will pursue collaborative and interdisciplinary research to support the WRN objective on improving air and water quality for healthy communities. This research will focus on aiding NOAA to improve high-resolution ozone, smoke, dust, and other particulate matter forecasts; data on extreme temperatures; and expanded predictive capabilities that include water quality. SBE research will be directed at supporting NOAA to assess and develop effective means of communicating risk of these hazards to vulnerable communities.
