Research Centers and Organizations









British Antarctic Survey   
no description available
Center for Health and the Global Environment   
no description available
Center for International Earth Science Information Network (CIESIN)   
The Center for International Earth Science Information Network (CIESIN) is a center within the Earth Institute at Columbia University. CIESIN works at the intersection of the social, natural, and information sciences, and specializes in on-line data and information management, spatial data integration and training, and interdisciplinary research related to human interactions in the environment.
Climate & Carbon Research   
The Climate and Carbon Research (CCR) activity in the Center for Computational Science at ORNL is a scientific research center that focuses on the computational aspects of how the global climate and carbon systems interact with natural and anthropogenic processes. The goal of CCS-CCR is to serve as a world-class climate and carbon research center and be a focal point for the computational climate and carbon simulation community.
Climate Monitoring and Diagnostics Laboratory (CMDL)   
NOAA's Climate Monitoring and Diagnostics Laboratory (CMDL) conducts sustained observations and research related to source and sink strengths, trends and global distributions of atmospheric constituents that are capable of forcing change in the climate of Earth through modification of the atmospheric radiative environment, those that may cause depletion of the global ozone layer, and those that affect baseline air quality.
Columbia Earth Institute   
no description available
Global Network of Environment & Technology (GNET)   
GNET contains information resources on environmental news, innovative environmental technologies, government environmental technology programs, contracting opportunities, market assessments, market information, current events and other material of interest to the environmental technology community.
Hadley Centre for Climate Prediction and Research   
The Hadley Centre, part of the United Kingdom's Meteorological Office, provides a focus for the scientific issues associated with climate change. The Hadley Centre receives, quality controls, and archives large amounts of observed climate data and develops numerical climate models for climate prediction.
International Research Institute for Climate Change Prediction   
The mission of the IRI is to continually assess and develop seasonal-to-interannual climate forecasts, and to foster the application of such climate forecasts to the explicit benefit of societies.
Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory (LDEO)   
no description available
National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR)   
NCAR researchers conduct research on atmospheric and related science problems and are recognized for their scientific contributions to our understanding of the earth system, including climate change, changes in atmospheric composition, Earth-Sun interactions, weather formation and forecasting, and the impacts of all of these components on human societies.
National Center for Ecological Analysis and Synthesis   
no description available
National Institute for Environmental Studies   
Researchers at the institute collaborate in a wide range of fields, from the basic sciences, engineering, agriculture and fisheries sciences to medicine, pharmacology, and economics.
National Institute for Global Environmental Change (NIGEC)   
no description available
NOAA Aeronomy Laboratory   
The Aeronomy Laboratory conducts fundamental research on the chemical and dynamical processes of the Earth's atmosphere. This research concentrates on the lower two layers of the atmosphere -- the troposphere and the stratosphere. The Aeronomy Lab's research findings provide a sound scientific basis for decisions made in industry and government related to ozone layer protection, air quality improvement, and climate change understanding.
NOAA-CIRES Climate Diagnostics Center   
NOAA's Climate Diagnostics Center researches the nature and causes for climate variations on time scales ranging from a month to centuries. The website contains a number of tools for plotting and analyzing atmospheric and oceanographic data.
SCRIPPS Institution of Oceanography
