Centers, Labs, and Programs

Develops models and analyzes observations to understand the microphysical and chemical evolution of aerosol particles in the atmosphere.

Studies fundamental physical processes that govern terrestrial climate change, with emphasis on observations and particular attention to the Earth’s polar regions.

Investigating everything from ocean physics to ice sheet and glacier dynamics to the ecology of the organisms that live at the poles.

We seek to improve our understanding of the high latitude oceans, ice, and atmosphere, and their interaction, by engaging in rigorous, fundamental research that is attentive to the needs of society.
