The PCCRC is a crucible for interdisciplinary research on climate change and its ecological, social, economic, and political impacts. The PCCRC is built on a foundation of scientific excellence, interdisciplinary perspective, and the momentum generated by a new, multi-departmental faculty hiring plan. The PCCRC mission is to increase scientific and public understanding of the causes and impacts of climate change through fundamental research and effective education and outreach.
