Climate & Carbon Sciences Program Projects

The Climate and Carbon Sciences Program of the Earth Sciences Division at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory encompasses both atmospheric and ecosystem processes, seeking to improve understanding of climate forcing, ecosystem-climate feedbacks, and ecosystem goods and services like biofueld production, carbon sequestration, and climate change adaptation. The Program is focused around a set of interrelated goals and integrates a wide range of expertise and tools to conduct fundamental science and to improve predictive climate models (see projects grouped by Research Area). The Climate and Carbon Sciences Program is a central component of Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory's Carbon Cycle 2.0 initiative.  CC2 harnesses the Lab's diverse research activities toward delivering creative solutions for a carbon-neutral energy future.
