CIRES researchers use time-honored and cutting-edge approaches to study diverse aspects of Earth system science, with a focus on research that is “use-inspired.” That is, CIRES science seeks to improve fundamental understanding of the changing world and to produce applications that are useful and used by decision makers, educators, the private sector, and others.
