The University of Minnesota is a leader in climate research focused on local, regional, and global climate change science. Our research team addresses a wide array of science questions related to atmospheric processes, land-atmosphere interactions, greenhouse gases, and agricultural and natural ecosystem responses to climate change. Key questions include: How might climate change affect terrestrial ecosystems? How can we use numerical models to better understand atmospheric processes and predict effects of future climate change? What may climate change do to agricultural productivity in Minnesota and around the globe?
