Who we are

Climate Change Research Section scientists use Earth system models such as NCAR’s CESM and DOE’s E3SM, as well as CMIP multi-model data sets, a hierarchy of models, observations, and machine learning (ML), to gain a predictive and process level understanding of present and future modes of variability in the climate system. 


Our mission

The mission of the Climate Change Research Section is to achieve a comprehensive understanding of current and future modes of variability, including prediction, mechanisms of interaction, related tipping points, and characterization of regional and global Earth system impacts.
