Centers, Labs, and Projects

Atmospheric Aerosols Group
Develops models and analyzes observations to understand the microphysical and chemical evolution of aerosol particles in the atmosphere.
Center for Aerosol Impacts on Climate and the Environment (CAICE)
CAICE is a Center for Chemical Innovation focused on the fundamental chemistry behind the impact of aerosol particles on our climate.
Center for Western Weather and Water Extremes (CW3E)
Provide water cycle science, technology and outreach to support effective policies and practices that address the impacts of extreme weather and water events on the environment, people and the economy of western North America.
Lubin Lab
Studies fundamental physical processes that govern terrestrial climate change, with emphasis on observations and particular attention to the Earth’s polar regions.
AWARE – ARM West Antarctic Radiation Experiment
Aims to gain insight into the factors behind recent climate change in West Antarctica by quantifying the role of changing air masses on the surface energy balance.
