Cluster I: Climate Change
Cluster I: Climate Change is a interdisciplinary forum for scholarly interactions. The mission is to develop world-class research and academic programs, prioritize and address current issues pertinent to the climate and environmental change, establish linkages with national and international programs, and develop inter-disciplinary academic curricula. More specifically, Climate Change scientists are addressing the current issues related to the accelerated greenhouse effect; establishing the database with regards to the indicator of climate change; studying carbon sequestration, researching surface chemistry and other technological options to mitigate the greenhouse effect; assessing economic and environmental impact; and studying the human dimensions. This mission is achieved through: • Establishing cooperative linkages with other programs, • Developing research and academic programs that address current issues, and • Sponsoring campus-wide forums that provide opportunities for multi-disciplinary activities.
