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.

    The wide range of cost estimates for stabilizing climate is puzzling to policy makers as well as researchers. Assumptions about technology costs have been studied extensively as one reason for these differences. Here, we ...

    Using the MIT Integrated Global System Modeling (IGSM) framework, we assess the climate impacts of emission scenarios exhibiting global mean surface temperatures ranging between 2.4°C and 4.3°C above pre-industrial by 2100. ...

    The economics of climate change involves a vast array of uncertainties, complicating both the analysis and development of climate policy. This study presents the results of the first comprehensive study of uncertainty in ...

    Carbon capture and storage (CCS) from coal combustion is widely viewed as an important approach for China’s carbon dioxide (CO2) emission mitigation, but the pace of its development is still fairly slow. In addition to the ...

    The paper examines conditions under which gas-to-liquids (GTL) technology penetration shifts the crude oil-natural gas price ratio. Technologies that enable direct substitution across fuels, as GTL does, may constrain the ...
