Research Centers Web Site Links

The Center for Global Environmental Studies - The Center for Global Environmental Studies at Oak Ridge National Laboratory provides a base for exploring global issues beyond the boundaries of traditional research disciplines.

Asia-Pacific Network for Global Change Research (APN) - An inter-governmental network for the promotion of global environmental change research and links between science and policy making in the Asia-Pacific Region.

Climate System Research Center, University of Massachusetts - Research is focused on the climate system, climate variability and global change issues, from contemporary climate variations, their causes and consequences, to paleoclimatic and paleoenvironmental changes. Includes news of recent research.

Environmental Change Institute, University of Oxford - Oxford University's centre for the study of environmental change: causes, impacts and remediation.

International Arctic Research Center, Fairbanks, Alaska - Fostering international collaboration in global climate change research in the Arctic.

NASA: Goddard Institute for Space Studies - Includes a spotlight on global warming, and information on their research into the climate and climate modelling.

NASA Scatterometer Climate Record Pathfinder - Microwave radar scatterometers measure wind over the ocean from space. Their data is usefule for monitoring climate conditions. This site provides access to climate record data from the Seasat, NSCAT, ERS-1/2 and SeaWinds scatterometers in image form to support climate change studies.

UK Climatic Research Unit - Widely recognised as one of the world's leading institutions concerned with the study of natural and anthropogenic climate change. Site provides a introductory-level information sheets, extensive downloadable data sets, information on research projects and programmes, and information on academic programmes, climate conferences, and climate links.

US Global Hydrology and Climate Center - A joint venture between government (NASA) and academia to study the global water cycle and its effect on weather and climate.

Northern Climate ExChange - Yukon-based exchange point for climate change study in the circumpolar north. Topics include climate predictions, impacts, and energy efficiency.

Global Change Data and Information System - A gateway to global change data.

U.S. Global Change Data and Information System (GCDIS) - A collection of distributed information systems operated by government agencies involved in global change research. GCDIS includes multidisciplinary data from atmospheric science, ecology, oceanography, economics and sociology.

US NOAA Office of Global Programs - Leads the U.S. NOAA Climate and Global Change (C&GC) Program. OGP assists NOAA by sponsoring focused scientific research aimed at understanding climate variability and it predictability.

Dutch Global Climate Change Research Programme - Searchable reports and proceeedings on the projects supported by the program.

World Climate Research Programme- World Meteorological Organization (WMO) - Research to develop a fundamental scientific understanding of the physical climate system and climate processes to support studies of global change.

International Geosphere-Biosphere Programme - Programme is focused on acquiring basic scientific knowledge about the interactive processes of biology and chemistry of the earth as they relate to Global Change.

Center for Global Environmental Research, Japan - Conducts diverse research on the consequences of human activities on the earth system. Includes information about capabilities, projects, data, and publications.

Australian CSIRO Atmospheric Research - Addresses topics such as urban and regional air pollution, acid deposition, the enhanced greenhouse effect, ozone depletion, climatic variability and severe weather
