Simple Planning Tool for Oklahoma Climate Hazards v1.6

This tool is a compilation of easy-to-use online interactive tools, maps, and graphs relevant to 13 hazards: 10 climate hazards and 3 other hazards. Users can access and obtain locally relevant data from the provided links and instructions. The tool also contains information on data limitations and a state-of-the-science summary on projected future trends for each hazard. Finally, appendices include hazard definitions, historical FEMA/presidential disaster declaration information, climate change resources, and incentive and action programs for hazard risk reduction. Version 1.6, which includes some updated URLS, was released in September 2021.

South Central U.S. Hazard and Climate Change Planning Assessment (2013)

An online survey was sent to various decision makers located in the SCIPP region and was used to assess hazard and climate change planning, information use, and applications across the region. This survey was initially administered in 2009 and was administered again in 2013 to determine whether changes occurred since the first iteration.

Southern U.S. Regional Hazards and Climate Change Planning Assessment

As one of the first major SCIPP research projects, the goal of this particular study was to better understand local and regional hazard planning across the Southern U.S., specifically from the perspective of those involved with developing plans.

Weather and Climate Impacts on Military Operations Workshop Summary Report

In September of 2018, representatives from six Oklahoma military installations along with members of the weather and climate research community across the University of Oklahoma participated in the workshop, Weather and Climate Impacts on Military Operations. The Southern Climate Impacts Planning Program (SCIPP), a NOAA RISA team, in conjunction with the Colleges of Atmospheric and Geographic Sciences and Engineering, hosted this workshop. This report includes an overview of the workshop goals, presentations, discussions, and outcomes. An overview of the workshop successes is also provided, based on the results of the workshop post-event survey.

Workshop on Communicating Seasonal Climate Information: Summary Report

This summary is based on the collective contributions of federal and state climate scientists, decision makers, and communication experts. This report provides insight into how climate information is being used by decision makers and is geared towards scientists who wish to improve their communication with those outside of their field.
