Workshop on the California Heat Assessment Tool
May 30 @ 11:00 am - 12:30 pm
Director of Analytics, Nik Steinberg, and Editor, Natalie Ambrosio, will lead a workshop on the California Heat Assessment Tool (CHAT) for SafeCAT (Climate Action Team) members. This hands-on workshop will inform attendees about the online platform (cal-heat.org) that provides local, contextualized data on projected increases in extreme heat events across California. Participants will become familiar with the interactive interface, indicator display options and data download tools. Participants will be guided through case studies from San Francisco and Los Angeles counties, and will then explore ways in which the tool can inform long-term adaptation strategies and targeted public engagement in their area.
