). Fig . 1. A map showing the distribution of the sampled NWS WFOs, and the NWS regional offices’ operational boundaries. White lines separate adjacent WFOs. No WFOs are across NWS regional boundaries (after Li et al. 2018 ). b. Operationalization The dependent variable of retweet counts is the number of times a tweet was retransmitted. The respective effects of the PMFs were operationalized as four variables indicating the presence or absence of each PMF ( hazard intensity , health risk

). In short, our data can be interpreted as showing that adaptation planning is perceived as being compatible with meeting the needs of current citizens (an intra -generational) rather than being a future ( inter -generational) climate change problem, although the prevalence of this discursive framing through demographically representative survey work would be a fruitful line of future research. 6. Concluding remarks This study has demonstrated the boundary work of the adaptation concept

-related risk perception. Current experimental design addressed these issues by (i) collecting open-ended continuous responses of weather agent intensities and personal risk scores on an ordinal scale (supplemented with sociodemographic information about participants) and (ii) randomizing experimental stimuli order at both within- and between-person levels to eliminate possible order effects. 4. Experiments Wind, rain, and wind-driven rain were experimentally manipulated in an observatory attached to a

issues of concern and evaluates whether current management decisions are appropriate under projected changes, or whether they need to be reconsidered, is warranted. Second, relatively few cross-boundary and regional- to national-level drought responses were reported. These decisions were constrained by competing mandates, resource constraints, and distrust. Intra-agency support to carry out day-to-day tasks, financial mechanisms to support interagency work, requirements for collaboration, and

lightning database recorded by the World Wide Lightning Location Network (WWLLN) that detects the very low-frequency radiation (“sferics”) associated with lightning strokes. The network is currently formed by about 50 stations distributed around the world, located primarily at universities and research centers. WWLLN started operating in 2002 ( Dowden et al. 2008 ) but only from 2005 onward did the detection efficiency reach an acceptable level ( Jacobson et al. 2006 ; Abarca et al. 2010 ). Currently

. These data were obtained from documents including health data and bulletins, newspaper archives, and reports from Peruvian nongovernmental and governmental institutions. Following this introduction is a description of the climate affairs approach and its application in this study. The second section is a review of the El Niño–cholera hypothesis in Peru. The third section recounts the current evidence in support of the hypothesis and a link. Here, our focus is the literature in Peru. The fourth

. Similar to Garbrecht and Schneider (2007) , they argue for more participatory research that considers farmers’ perspectives as well as cross-disciplinary approaches that bring together climate, agricultural, and social science to make the most of advances in forecasting ( Meinke and Stone 2005 ). Hansen (2002) reviews research up to that time on the potential of climate forecasts for agriculture in both the United States and Australia, what weather and climate information farmers are currently

the direct reactions of social media users to online warnings, the elements within a warning that can influence public attention, and the mechanism of the influence process. Specifically, Sina Weibo is chosen as the current research context. We identify and classify the potential factors into three categories based on the protective action decision model (PADM) and framing theory: hazard attributes, framing factors, and publisher’s/reader’s characteristics. Since Weibo enables users to directly

al. 2014 ; Meadow et al. 2015 ), and go beyond a set of best practices to effectively measure these key principles and their importance in the coproduction process. In this paper we present our work on developing and testing an evaluative framework for coproduced climate science. In this research, we identified the key principles in coproducing knowledge from the existing literature, examined how usable climate research is currently evaluated, and interviewed experienced climate science

occupational studies focused on construction ( Lipscomb et al. 2006 ) and mail delivery ( Bentley and Haslam 2001 ). Most pertinent to the current study is literature that examined relationships between fall-related injuries and weather, or walking-surface conditions, at subseasonal scales over longer periods of time that include many weather events. Retrospective studies have compared the presence or absence of hazardous weather conditions during days with a high prevalence of falls relative to other days
