Climate Research & Impacts

Research focused on understanding oceanic and atmospheric processes associated with global and regional climate change on various temporal scales as well as the impacts of climate variability and change. This includes both research to determine effective regional adaptation strategies, and the development of new climate information products and tools appropriate for evolving user needs, particularly in the Southeast United States and the Caribbean. 

These research activities contribute to NOAA Mission Goal 2: Climate Adaptation and Mitigation – An informed society anticipating and responding to climate and its impacts.
