National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration  Popular
Description: Although NOAA was formed in 1970, the agencies that came together at that time are among the oldest in the Federal Government. The agencies included the United States Coast and Geodetic Survey formed in 1807, the Weather Bureau formed in 1870, and the Bureau of Commercial Fisheries formed in 1871. Individually these organizations were America's first physical science agency, America's first agency dedicated specifically to the atmospheric sciences, and America's first conservation agency. Much of America's scientific heritage resides in these agencies. They brought their cultures of scientific accuracy and precision, stewardship of resources, and protection of life and property to the newly formed agency.

    Carbon Cycle Science Program  Popular
    Description: The USGCRP budget includes $221 million in FY 2002 for research and observations related to understanding the global carbon cycle. Carbon is important as the basis for thefood and fiber that sustain human populations, as the primary energy source that fuels human economies, and as a major contributor to the planetary greenhouse effect and the potential for climate change. Carbon dioxide (CO2) and methane (CH4) concentration have been increasing in the atmosphere, primarily as a result of human use of fossil fuels and land clearing, and are now higher than they have been for at least 400,000 years. Of the CO2 emitted to the atmosphere, about half is currently taken up as part of the natural cycling of carbon into the ocean, and into land plants and soils. These reservoirs of carbon are known as carbon “sinks.” Changes in land management practices and the addition of CO2 and nutrients are known to have the potential to enhance significantly the uptake of carbon, particularly by forests and croplands.

    ClimatePrediction.net 
    Description: What is climateprediction.net?
    Climateprediction.net is the largest experiment to try and produce a forecast of the climate in the 21st century. To do this, we need people around the world to give us time on their computers - time when they have their computers switched on, but are not using them to their full capacity.

    Why?
    Climate change, and our response to it, are issues of global importance, affecting food production, water resources, ecosystems, energy demand, insurance costs and much else. There is a broad scientific consensus that the Earth will probably warm over the coming century; climateprediction.net should, for the first time, tell us what is most likely to happen.

    Center for Carbon Management 
    Description: Missing from the recent debate on the worlds energy needs is an attempt to maintain the fossil fuel option while addressing the legitimate environmental concerns over the emission of carbon dioxide. Rather than eliminating the use of fossil fuels or ignoring the risks they pose to the atmosphere, a viable third way would find ways to capture virtually all carbon dioxide, either at the point of emission or from the air, and dispose of it safely and permanently. The mission of the Center for Carbon Management is to research and develop new technologies that will sustain fossil fuels as a viable energy source.

The Department of Space Studies works to give students a working knowledge of the overall picture so they can become the scientists, engineers, planners, managers, troubleshooters, negotiators and communicators of the space community.

    Bjerknes Centre for Climate Research 
    Description: The Bjerknes Centre for Climate Research (BCCR) is a joint climate research venture between the University of Bergen (UoB), the Institute of Marine Research (IMR) and the Nansen Environmental and Remote Sensing Center (NERSC). The BCCR integrates observationalists and modellers in a concerted interdisciplinary research effort with the ambition to be a world-class centre on studies of high-latitude climate change. The BCCR is the largest climate research group in Norway. In 2002 it was awarded the status of a national Center of Excellence by the Research Council of Norway.

    Atmospheric and Oceanic Sciences Program at Princeton 
    Description: We invite you to participate in Princetons Atmospheric and Oceanic Sciences Program which offers a combination of courses and interdisciplinary research on a wide range of environmental topics related to weather and climate. Our interests cover natural and human-induced phenomena, from daily changes in the weather, to global warming over the next century (should the atmospheric concentration of greenhouse gases continue to rise), to the recurrent Ice Ages that our planet experienced in the distant past. Because of our close ties to the Geophysical Fluid Dynamics Laboratory of NOAA, our facilities include supercomputers for the realistic simulation of atmospheric and oceanic motion. Because we are part of the Department of Geosciences of Princeton University, some of our faculty members participate in field programs (in the tropical oceans, and in Antarctica for example), while others perform laboratory experiments to explore the bio-geochemistry that determines the fate of the carbon dioxide we are injecting into the atmosphere. Our association with Princetons Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs enables us to participate in the design of policies to cope with regional and global environmental problems.
