Partnership to advance ecosystem models, water level predictions

Collaboration designed to improve response to coastal climate risks

NOAA and climate analytics company, Jupiter Intelligence, signed a formal agreement to advance understanding of coastal ecosystems, precipitation and water level predictions. The goal of the partnership is to support community response to coastal risks to mitigate effects of climate change.

“Water and ecosystem data, modeling, and visualization are all critical elements of NOAA’s goal to build a climate-ready nation by 2030,” said Nicole LeBoeuf, NOAA National Ocean Service director. “We are experiencing vast environmental change, and partnerships like these help NOAA harness the best tools available to boost the public’s resilience and promote economic growth.”

Through a new agreement to explore research areas of joint interest, NOAA scientists will provide scientific data and expertise related to ecosystem changes, with a focus on the use of nature-based solutions in coastal restoration. Jupiter will explore cutting-edge approaches to scale local study results and test hypotheses on expanded geographical areas.

The partnership will also focus on methods to improve seasonal and annual precipitation and coastal water level predictions. Jupiter will offer expertise on cloud computing and numerical methods that NOAA will seek to apply in operations.

“Jupiter pioneered many of its commercial solutions with the U.S. Federal Government and welcomes the opportunity to collaborate with NOAA to advance our scientific understanding of essential ecosystems,” said Rich Sorkin, Jupiter CEO. “With each of these partnerships, we better apply the latest science and provide services to protect people and ecosystems.”

Jupiter provides physical climate analytics for risk management and resiliency planning in the public and private sectors. Customers use Jupiter’s climate analytics for applications that include capital planning, risk management, site selection, design requirements, supply chain management, investment and asset valuations, and shareholder disclosures.

NOAA and Jupiter share the goal of improving resilience for the most vulnerable and under-resourced populations.
