The mission of the Center for Climatic Research (CCR) is to advance understanding of the climate system through interdisciplinary investigations of past, present, and future climates, and to use this knowledge for societal relevant purposes.

CCR accomplishes this mission by
  • excelling in disciplinary and interdisciplinary research using observations and earth-system models.
  • integrating knowledge of past, present, and future climates to create a more holistic understanding of the climate system.
  • researching the physical, ecological, and societal impacts of climatic variations and climate change.
  • collaborating with university, state, national, and international researchers to study topical climate-related problems.
  • promoting public understanding of climate-related issues, including global change.
Research areas include bio geochemistry, climate impacts, land surface process, oceanography and limnology, and past climates.
