About CSAP

Improving Societal Welfare in the Context of Changing Weather and Climate

The Climate Science and Application Program (CSAP) carries out interdisciplinary research on social, economic, and health activities related to climate and weather at local, regional and global scales. CSAP research areas include natural resource governance, dynamics of urban systems, weather climate and health, GIS and regional climate for adaptation.   CSAP scientists address adaptation to climate change by generating scenarios of projected climate change, developing scientific tools and methods for analyzing current and future vulnerability, and conducting integrated analyses of climate change impacts and adaptation.  An important component of this program is the integration of decision-makers and users of climate information into CSAP's societal research activities.
