Climate and Global Change
Climate Variability and Predictability (CLIVAR) - CLIVAR is an international research program addressing many issues of natural climate variability and anthropogenic climate change. As part of the wider World Climate Research Program (WCRP).
Carbon Dioxide Information Analysis Center - The Carbon Dioxide Information Analysis Center (Thomas A. Boden, Director), which includes the World Data Center for Atmospheric Trace Gases, is the primary global-change data and information analysis center of the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE).
- Center for International Earth Science Information Network - 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.
- Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory Climate Work - The Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory (LDEO) is a leading research institution where more than 200 research scientists seek fundamental knowledge about the origin, evolution and future of the natural world.
- Natural Resources Conservation Service Climate Data - The mission of the Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) is "To provide leadership in a partnership effort to help people conserve, improve, and sustain our natural resources and environment."
Global Change On-Line Course - The University of Michigan Global Change Curriculum offers an interdisciplinary three semester introductory course sequence that investigates the causes and potential impacts of global change using a combination of traditional lecture-based and modern web-based teaching methodologies.
Intergovernmental Panel On Climate Change (United Nations Environmental Program & World Meteorological Office) - The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) has been established by WMO and UNEP to assess scientific, technical and socio-economic information relevant for the understanding of climate change, its potential impacts and options for adaptation and mitigation. It is open to all Members of the UN and of WMO.
NASA - Since its inception in 1958, NASA has accomplished many great scientific and technological feats in air and space. NASA technology also has been adapted for many non-aerospace uses by the private sector. NASA remains a leading force in scientific research and in stimulating public interest in aerospace exploration, as well as science and technology in general.
