Our Mission

  The fundamental research outcome of our center will be a leap in the understanding of the physics of the earth system, its feedbacks, instabilities and sensitivities on a wide range of timescales (from weather to glacial cycles) and in response to a number of forcings. We will generate scientific knowledge that can help policymakers and the general public make informed decisions on how to cope and respond to the emerging threat of global and regional climate change, sea level rise and ocean acidification.
