NE CSC consortium-member Columbia University released Climate Risk Information (CRI) 2013, in support of New York City Mayor Bloomberg’s Special Initiative for Rebuilding and Resiliency (SIRR), 2013.  The climate analysis and projections presented in CRI are one of the criteria being used to inform multi-billion dollar post-Sandy decisions in New York City.

The sea level rise projections methods in CRI are being used to inform DOI sea level rise and coastal vulnerability projects as well.
