The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) has integrated artificial intelligence technology into a public-facing website that offers news and educational materials about climate science.

AI-powered Climate.gov supports location-based searches, content integration and crosslinking across the site, the agency said Oct. 12th.

The site has an updated dashboard that offers a visual readout of climate trends, a list of frequently asked questions and answers for non-experts, a data primer and National Centers for Environmental Information-hosted tools.

Climate.gov helps meet the diverse needs of the public, whose health, safety, and economic well-being are directly tied to climate, water, and weather,” said NOAA Administrator Rick Spinrad.

Spinrad added the site redesign effort would advance his objective to maintain the agency’s role as “the authoritative provider of climate products and services, and increase our capacity to help communities better understand, prepare for, and respond to climate risks and impacts.”
