Center for Global Change Science

 

The Center for Global Change Science (CGCS) seeks to better understand the fundamental processes and mechanisms controlling the global environment. The interdisciplinary Center, founded in January, 1990, utilizes theory and observations of oceanic, atmospheric, and terrestrial systems, to improve the ability to accurately predict global environmental change. Two major activities of the CGCS are the Climate Modeling Initiative, and the Joint Program on the Science and Policy of Global Change. Visit the CGCS website for more information.
