Dialoge on a NOAA Climate Service
June 14, 2010 at 5:45 pm #102972
My name is Mary Krulia and I work at the National Academy of Public Administration (NAPA). NAPA is hosting an online discussion forum starting today called “A Dialogue on a NOAA Climate Service” as part of a study of organizational options for a new Climate Service at the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA). Over the next two weeks, you have the opportunity to participate in the Dialogue!
This Dialogue is a forum for you to offer ideas in response to a key question:
How should the NOAA Climate Service engage with users and providers of climate information and services?
Thanks and we hope to hear from you!

Link “NOAA” Climate Service with Hurricane & Tornado Preparation & Response on a community & geography levels ? (via the govloop “Collaboration Group” ?
(1b) response & preparation for hurricane/tornado/earthquakes
(2b) telemedicine & related health/IT innovation topics
These two topics are ‘key’ elements being pursued at Coastal Virginia recently anchored by a U.S. Chamber of Commerce entity and regional planning non-profit for a 2 day intensive follow-up meeting & actionable knowledge development with a Private Public Partnership (PPP) perspective.
link this initiative to your topic ?
Here is what i do that is relevant to your forum (in 7 words or less as discussed in another govloop forum today)

I have examined your pdf summary. It has 3 key issues from our Twin Project USA C2C , a proposed PPP development in two key geography that are quite different, and climate issues are also diffierent. First is our geogrpahy here, let’s call it the “Cheasapeake Bay Region Geography” .
“Climate Service” topics that are most important in this geogrpahy would be preparation for hurricanes with secondary element of tornados. There are states issues, relating to 7 key elements as have been discussed in the State of Virginia Emergency Management Plan which I have examined carefullly.
This is an high quality and high value plan, and barriers to implimentation on a county & independent town perspective must be addressed so that effective implemenation can be executed, both on a state level, & regonal level in border geography such as Coastal NC-VA, and CB geography, with DC-MD-PA-VA-WVA .
Second geography, different ‘climate’ elments due to significantly higher risk of tornados is the proposed Twin Project USA C2C anchored with Tucson, AZ anchor and providing coverage in the vast rural surrounding population, who face possible signficiantly higher tornado risk that we do here in CB region.
The 7 elements identified in the VA Emergency Management Plan, includes emergency medical and fire, that are critical linked to coordinated response cross-border on a particular geography such as CB Geography with DC-MD-PA-VA-WV & different climate topics, oriented to “tornado” risks, at AZ-NM-TX-OK border geogrpahy.
In the proposal via a PPP, for Twin Project C2C for both of these geography, it would be logical to link not only the NOAA service but also that which is availabel relating to this topic from NASA, in a way, that allows community to community cooperation as a rapid reponse as is required for early response for Tornado, and somewhat more timely for hurricanes, but on a cross border basis on all 7 elements disucssed in the State of VA’s comprehensive plan for natural disaster response.
Link to NOAA possible for Twin Project USA C2C for both of these two geography discussed here ? If yes, what is the protocol at NOAA ?
