Our Research

Climate change is the greatest challenge facing humanity today. In order to motivate timely strategies for prevention and mitigation, it is crucially important that the scientific community develops a deep understanding of the global mechanisms underpinning this phenomenon.

Working across disciplinary boundaries, Carnegie scientists seek to obtain a more complete picture of our how our planet’s dynamic systems and cycles shape its atmosphere at local to global scales, and the dangerous effects of human activity on these processes.

Carnegie researchers analyze various energy solutions, addressing urgent questions about sustainability, and informing policy strategies, as well as techonology pathways.
