does not have the goal of being immediately relevant to a societal decisions ( Dilling and Lemos 2011 ). In pursuit of usable science, emphasis has been placed on coproduction ( Lemos and Morehouse 2005 ; Beier et al. 2017 ), the “process of producing usable, or actionable, science through collaboration between scientists and those who use science to make policy and management decisions” ( Meadow et al. 2015 , p. 179). Coproduction as a process has at its heart a focus on connecting researchers

, and, through retrospective analysis, multiple studies have developed meteorological parameterizations of road ice formation. The majority of the developed parameterizations emphasize hoarfrost formation, although numerous studies have also confirmed the risks associated with freezing fog and frozen precipitation. The goal of this study and the resultant developed model, RIM, was to develop a diagnostic and prognostic model to assist in the prevention of road ice–related impacts on societal

). These storms are among the most destructive atmospheric phenomena on Earth, and are “from a meteorological and climatological perspective, one of nature’s most challenging perils” ( Etkin et al. 2001 , p. 915). A substantial portion of the literature pertaining to the societal aspects of these intense storms focuses on the various factors that influence warning response. These factors may be either external to the individual or individual controlled. Examples of externally controlled factors include

different national political, economic, and societal contexts that each NMS operates within. This paper explores one such history detailing the emergence of commercial services and a corporate identity at the MO, showing how early developments in the period 1945–65 are important for our understanding of the MO’s commercial shift in the 1980s and 90s, and more broadly of the emergence of the United Kingdom as a leading global supplier of weather services. Since 1990, when the MO became an executive

The current study augments this previous work by examining Hurricane Ike, which presents an interesting case for investigating societal aspects of hurricanes for several reasons. Although the Houston–Galveston area has experienced damaging tropical storms, Ike was the first hurricane to cause major damage in the area in decades. In 2005, Hurricane Rita threatened the area and produced widespread evacuations and traffic jams

1. Introduction Weather impacts our lives each and every day. For some people, weather has only a small impact on life, such as deciding what to wear on a given day. For others, though, weather can have a much larger impact, particularly on those who work outdoors, such as sportsmen in outdoor sports. One example of a weather affected sport is Major League Baseball (MLB). MLB games are played in 30 stadiums at various locations over the United States, which includes 1 stadium in Canada. Only 1

on adaptation ( Paavola and Adger 2006 ). These broad justice considerations are empirically based on the fact that adaptation to climate change consists of individual and group choices made in the context of present and predicted climate change impacts, societal concerns, and priorities and existing institutional decision-making structures and processes that bias particular distributions of resources, wealth, and power ( Paavola and Adger 2006 ). These choices and decisions are often
