Welcome to CCR's Climate Change Prediction in CGD
The CCR Section has a Climate Change and Prediction (CCP) group which focuses on present and future climate change which is primarily funded by the DOE's Office of Biological and Environmental Research program which has a Climate Change subprogram with one of its goals being to predict accurately any global and regional climate change induced by increasing atmospheric concentrations of aerosols and greenhouse gases. This is DOE's contribution to the U.S. Climate Change Science Program that integrates federal research on global change and climate change. CCP has concentrated on the decade to centuries time scales goal which is part of the priorities for the federal Climate Change Science Program (CCSP).
