The Climate System Research Center is a research facility of the University of Massachusetts. Our research is focused on the climate system, climatic variability and global change issues, from contemporary climate variations, their causes and consequences, to paleoclimatic and paleoenvironmental changes.
A three year curriculum development and professional development program entitled "STEM Polar Connections: A three region initiative to integrate the study of Polar Regions and activities associated with the International Polar Year (IPY) into the middle and high school curriculum" has been funded. See the press release.

Ray Bradley, Director of the Climate System Research Center has received a three-year, $416,550 award from the National Science Foundation for his project, titled “Volcanoes in the Arctic System: Geochronology and Climate Impacts”. See the press release.

Ray Bradley, Distinguished Professor in the Department of Geosciences, was awarded the Hans Oeschger Medal of the European Geosciences Union, for "his contribution to paleoclimate reconstruction from continental archives and for being instrumental in the multi-proxy approach leading to the quantification of climate change over the last millennium". Bradley received the award at a ceremony in Vienna, Austria on April 17th.
