Data Center Description
The Center for Climatic Research (CCR) focuses on studies of present, future, and past climates, the links between ecosystems and climate and between civilizations and climate, and assessment of the impacts of climate variability on water, food, and energy resources. The center develops and uses coupled earth system models (atmosphere, ocean, land, biosphere) and observations to address regional, continental, and global-scale problems that are linked to important environmental, societal, and policy issues. The work of the center is organized around three laboratories: earth-system modeling, paleoecology, and archaeoclimatology.
