Data Center Description
The Cooperative Institute for Research in Environmental Sciences (CIRES) has in
recent years increasingly aligned its research along scientific themes rather
than organizational structures to foster a more interdisciplinary approach. We
are addressing scientific questions of societal relevance and seeking to
present results in a meaningful context. These themes are designed to reflect
changing priorities and can adapt to a dynamic world as needs evolve. The six
themes include four scientific foci, the advanced tools that support them, and
the underlying activities and philosophy that integrate them.


Climate System Variability
Planetary Metabolism
Regional Processes
Advanced Modeling and Observing Systems
Integrating Activities
