    • Sky image
      NSF-funded 'sky' research includes studies of physical and chemical atmospheric phenomena. Computational models of atmospheric processes allow researchers to predict what the climate of the future might be like.

    • Breaking wave image
      NSF-funded 'sea' researchers study the ocean's composition, currents, ecosystems and atmospheric interactions. The seafloor is an important source of information about Earth's climatic past; layers of sediment contain a wealth of information about the sea and atmospheric conditions that were present when the sediment layers were first deposited.

    • Ice image
      NSF-funded 'ice' researchers study Earth's cryosphere, which includes both polar regions as well as high-altitude glaciers and snow cover on Earth's landmasses. Ice and snow play a critical role in Earth's climate system.

      NSF-funded 'land' research includes studies on land use and how changing land use affects the global carbon cycle.

    • Frog image
      The Panamanian golden frog (Atelopus zeteki) is a member of the harlequin frogs (Genus: Atelopus). Scientists estimate that about 67 species of harlequin frogs have gone extinct due to fungus outbreaks. Evidence links these outbreaks with climate change.

    • Cars image
      Human activities, including the use of fossil fuels in automobiles, are responsible for an increase in carbon dioxide in the atmosphere over the last 250 years.
