STATMOS: Statistical Methods for Atmospheric and Oceanic Sciences | A research network
"Recent events in climate science have highlighted the need for increased participation of statisticians. While mathematics play an important role in modeling fluid dynamics, statistics specializes in quantifying uncertainty. We are building a network of statisticians with interest in atmospheric and ocean science. The hubs of the network (and some nodes) have personnel both in statistics and in atmospheric and ocean sciences, and the National Center for Atmospheric Research is a common node connected to each of the nodes. The network will also connect with similar networks in the Pacific Northwest and in Europe. The topics of research cover broad areas with a common theme being multivariate nonstationary non-Gaussian spatio-temporal models, which are needed to describe a changing world. Network researchers will study extreme events in space and time, will develop methods to compare models to data, make uncertainty assessments for scenario-based climate projections, and produce computationally efficient ways to deal with large amounts of data from observing networks and numerical models.

Geotechnical Extreme Events Reconnaissance (GEER) Association
"Extreme events engineering is an experience-driven field. Immediately following the occurrence of an extreme event (e.g., earthquake, tsunami, hurricane, landslide, or flood), perishable data that can be used to advance our understanding should be systemically collected. The importance of detailed mapping and surveying of damaged areas relative to general damage surveys cannot be overemphasized, as they provide the hard data of the well-documented case histories that drive the development of many of the empirical procedures used in geoengineering practice."

Welcome to the National Climate Change and Wildlife Science Center | National Climate Change and Wildlife Science Center
"The National Climate Change and Wildlife Science Center (NCCWSC) was created in 2008 as part of an ongoing mission to meet the challenges of climate change and its effects on wildlife. The earth's climate, including changes in temperature, weather patterns, and precipitation, will likely result in significant effects on our nation's fish and wildlife resources now and in the future. Relatively little scientific information exists on which to base management strategies to help fish and wildlife adapt to climate change. The U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) is meeting this challenge through the National Climate Change and Wildlife Science Center and partnerships with the Department of the Interior's Climate Science Centers (CSCs)."

Integrated Ocean Drilling Program
Home  About IODPAbout IODP  The Integrated Ocean Drilling Program (IODP) is an international marine research program that explores Earth's history and structure recorded in seafloor sediments and rocks, and monitors subseafloor environments. IODP builds upon the earlier successes of the Deep Sea Drilling Project (DSDP) and Ocean Drilling Program (ODP), which revolutionized our view of Earth history and global processes through ocean basin exploration. IODP greatly expands the reach of these previous programs by using multiple drilling platforms, including riser, riserless, and mission-specific, to achieve its scientific goal.
