Wednesday, Jun 20, 2018

Researchers at Princeton University and NOAA’s Geophysical Fluid Dynamics Laboratory (GFDL) have been awarded up to $40 million over five years to fund a new cooperative institute that focuses on Earth system research.

The Cooperative Institute for Modeling the Earth System (CIMES) aims to understand and predict the Earth’s climate system across time scales from days to decades, on local to global scales, and with particular focus on extreme weather and problems of relevance to society, including impacts on marine ecosystems, drought and air quality.

The new institute enables Princeton and GFDL to continue collaborative work begun under the Cooperative Institute for Climate Science, founded with funding from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration(NOAA) 15 years ago.
