Climate and Radiation Branch, Laboratory for Atmospheres, Earth Sciences Division, Science and Exploration Directorate, Goddard Space Flight Center, NASA

Data Center Description
The Climate and Radiation Branch at NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center
supports a key NASA mission, namely, to understand and protect our
home planet. We seek a better understanding of Earth's climate on all
time scales, from daily, seasonal and interannual variability through
changes on geologic time scales. Our research focuses on atmospheric
measurement, numerical modeling, and climate analysis. We investigate
atmospheric radiation, both as a driver for climate change and as a
tool for the remote sensing of Earth's atmosphere and surface. The
Branch research program seeks to better understand how our planet
reached its present state, and how it may respond to future drivers,
both natural and anthropogenic.
