The Climate Research Center (CRC) conducts research on climate science phenomena like hurricanes, droughts and floods with a special focus on their connections with climate variability, climate change and ·human activities. The CRC promotes the application of statistical methods and geographic information systems (GIS) to address climate science problems in Sonoma and beyond. The CRC collaborates with members of the SSU community and surrounding communities, and with researchers from other institutions around the world. The CRC provides state-of-the-art computers and cutting-edge software to study and analyze a vast array of problems in climate science. Students working in the CRC can experience climate science in action and will gain invaluable research experience and data analysis skills.
