National Weather Service’s Climate Prediction CenterThe Climate Prediction Center (CPC) is responsible for issuing seasonal climate outlook maps for one to thirteen months in the future. In addition, the CPC issues extended range outlook maps for 6-10 and 8-14 days as well as several special outlooks, such as degree day, drought and soil moisture, and a forecast for daily ultraviolet (UV) radiation index.
National Oceanic and Atmospheric AdministrationOpenNSPECT is the open-source version of the Nonpoint Source Pollution and Erosion Comparison Tool (more), to investigate potential water quality impacts from development, other land uses, and climate change.
NOAA Office for Coastal ManagementThe Port Tomorrow: Resilience Planning Tool was designed to provide port communities with the information needed to include resilience measures into freight transportation planning and port infrastructure projects, and in doing this, ensuring that surrounding communities grow stronger and more economically vibrant.
University Corporation for Atmospheric Research, NOAA National Weather ServiceThe COMET program was created in 1989 by the University Corporation for Atmospheric Research and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s National Weather Service to enhance weather forecaster’s understanding of mesoscale meteorology and forecasting technology.
NOAA Coastal Services CenterThis series of publications was produced the combined efforts of staff members from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administrations (NOAA) Coastal Services Center and Special Projects Division. Each guidebook is designed to give a brief and insightful overview of the concepts and tools necessary to apply social science based techniques to coastal management.
University of Wisconsin Land Information and Computer Graphics Facility, Wisconsin Sea GrantThe stable slope angle calculator was produced by the University of Wisconsin Land Information and Computer Graphics Facility and the Wisconsin Sea Grant Institute. This simple tool allows users to input data on their bluff height (ft), current bluff angle (deg.), and stable bluff angle (deg.) based on soil type, to estimate the distance landward from the edge of the current bluff that it would need to erode in order to at a "stable" slope angle. It is in this way that the tool can be used to determine a baseline estimate for a safe setback distance.
United States Environmental Protection AgencyThe Stormwater Management Model (SWMM) is a dynamic rainfall-runoff simulation model that can be used for single event or long-term (continuous) simulation of runoff quantity and quality from primarily urban areas.
Association of State Floodplain ManagersThe Toledo Flood Hazard Visualizer was developed to communicate the results of NOAA's report titled "Economic Assessment of Green Infrastructure Strategies for Climate Change Adaptation: Pilot Studies in the Great Lakes Region". With this tool, users are able to visualize how climate change and green infrastructure could impact flood damages on the property level.

This software allows the user to perform one-dimensional steady flow, one and two-dimensional unsteady flow calculations, sediment transport/mobile bed computations, and water temperature/water quality modeling.
US Geological Survey (USGS)
Estimates of streamflow statistics are used for a variety of water-resources and emergency planning, management, and regulatory purposes, and for design of structures such as bridges and culverts. These estimates are often needed at ungaged sites where no observed flow data are available.
