Centers, Labs, and Projects

A long-term systematic observing system of the physical state of the global ocean.
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.
Giddings Lab
Specializing in estuarine and coastal processes with an interest in interdisciplinary projects that address how physics impacts important biological and chemical processes in the coastal environment.
Sugihara Lab
Much of the work from this lab involves inductive theoretical approaches to understanding nature from observational data.
Weather Extremes and Climate Impacts Analytics (WECLIMA)
The WECLIMA group studies relationships between regionally impactful weather extremes and large-scale climate variability and change. We also collaborate across disciplines to study impacts on public health, ecosystems, water resources, wildfire, energy, and air quality.
