This session-within-a-session comprises two parts. Attendees will first hear how CHRS (Center for Hydrometeorology and Remote Sensing) RainSphere staff and USDA SWCH (Southwest Climate Hub) staff help make climate data and climate projections more easily understood and accessible to their respective users. Then, session attendees will draw from each presentation to outline a case study for the Climate Resilience Toolkit (CRT). Attendees can use strategies from the session to highlight their own projects' accomplishments.

This is the 5th workshop sponsored by ESIP's Agriculture & Climate Cluster to develop CRT case studies.

Workshop agenda:

[5 min] Introduction to the workshop, logistics, larger goal to establish a CRT pipeline at the ESIP level

[5 min] LuAnn Dahlman, NOAA, Introduction to CRT, including a backwards journey from a CRT case study to the story template

[15 min] Hoang Tran (Univ. of California, Irvine), CHRS RainSphere - a new user friendly tool for analyzing global remotely sensed rainfall estimates (HoangT abstract)

[15 min] Julian Reyes (USDA Southwest Climate Hub), Toward accessible, discoverable, and usable crop insurance data: Multi-scale analysis and visualization of cause of loss (JulianR abstract)

[45 min] Group discussion on and drafting of an incipient story, for each presentation, that would become a CRT case study

[5 min] Wrap-up: Next steps.
