CCP | Climate Change Prediction

The CCR Section has a Climate Change and Prediction (CCP) group which focuses on climate variability and change which is primarily funded by the DOE's Biological and Environmental Research program. This is DOE's contribution to the U.S. Global Change Research Program that integrates federal research on global change. CCP has concentrated on using initialized climate models to predict near-term climate (decadal climate prediction), analyzing model simulations and observations to study climate variability and change in the 20th and early 21st centuries, and running and analyzing climate projections with a variety of possible future emission scenarios to relate earth system processes to possible future changes in the climate system.
