CliMA The Climate Modeling Alliance (CliMA) is a coalition of scientists and engineers, who are building an Earth system model that leverages advances in the computational and data sciences to learn from Earth observations from space and the ground.
DOE Terrestrial Ecosystem Science DOE Terrestrial Ecosystem Science seeks to improve the representation of terrestrial ecosystem processes in Earth system models thereby improving the quality of climate model projections.
GOSAT Project The Greenhouse gases Observing SATellite (GOSAT) Project is a joint effort promoted by the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA), the National Institute for Environmental Studies (NIES) and the Ministry of the Environment (MOE).
JIFRESSE JIFRESSE is a scientific collaboration between UCLA and JPL to improve understanding and to develop future projections about global climate change.
JPL Laser Hygrometer The JPL Laser Hygrometer measures in-situ water vapor from NASA aircraft platforms in the upper troposphere and lower stratosphere, including the NASA ER-2, WB-57, DC-8, and Global Hawk.
NASA Interdisciplinary Research in Earth Science (IDS) This project uses spaceborne and tower data with carbon and water cycle models to understand how changes in temperature and water availability over the last decade have affected vegetation photosynthesis and carbon uptake in N America.
NSF Ecosystem Science A Belowground Framework for Predicting How Plant-Microbe Interactions Couple Carbon and Nutrient Economies of Forests.
OCO-2 - Orbiting Carbon Observatory The Orbiting Carbon Observatory-2 (OCO-2) is a mission designed to make precise, time-dependent global measurements of atmospheric carbon dioxide (CO-2) from an Earth orbiting satellite.
