Texas Center for Climate Studies

Texas Center for Climate Studies
Mission:

To initiate, encourage, and support climate-related programs in research, education, service, and outreach to improve the quality of life and economic health of Texas; advance understanding of why and how climate is changing and what changes will mean for Texas; promote translational research from climate models and provide it to others; and communicate climate change information and potential impacts to the public.

The Texas Center for Climate Studies develops prediction models of the regional climate system that help estimate and project how weather patterns, particularly extreme events such as hurricanes, droughts, and heat waves, may change. Because the climate is deeply connected with human and environmental sustainability, changes in climate may drive or disrupt many of the major economic sectors of Texas (agriculture, energy, tourism, manufacturing).
