Our climate drivers and projections research informs projections of extreme climate events, including heatwaves, droughts, floods and other threats to our water supply. It uses Earth system models to analyze how climate change interacts with a changing biosphere, oceans, and atmosphere. It uses the principles of quantum mechanics to develop new ways to analyze the atmosphere’s composition from space. And it takes a ‘deep time’ perspective on climate change through paleoclimatology.
