An integrated, multidisciplinary approach to research in the science of slow variability within the Earth System components and in societal adaptation to this slow variability is necessary for socio-economic and political stability of the global society in the 21st century

CRCES is a non-profit organization in Catonsville, Maryland. The major research themes of CRCES are decade-to-century scale variability and change in Earth system components; societal impacts, especially on water availability, of such variability and change; development and use of Virtual Centers such as the Virtual Center for Decadal Climate Variability; and development of inputs in observing-system design for decade-to-century scale variability and change. CRCES endeavors to develop a "fusion" discipline from this research to guide the formulation of public policy regarding adaptation of societies to such variability and change. CRCES is currently funded by NASA-Physical Oceanography Program, NOAA-Climate Project Office - Sectoral Applications Research Program, NSF-Climate and Large-scale Dynamics Program, and USDA-National Institute for Food and Agriculture.
