A Caltech led team, including MIT, the Naval Postgraduate School, and the Jet Propulsion Laboratory, is developing a new Earth system model that can reduce model uncertainty and deliver predictions to inform stakeholders as they plan resilient infrastructure, adapt supply chains to a changing climate, and assess the risks of climate-related hazards in their communities. Co-funded with Schmidt Futures and Paul G. Allen Family Foundation, findings will be forthcoming.
Phase One of our investment focused on building essential tools for reporters to use Earth observations, designing alongside journalist networks, and publishing major stories with the produced technology. A resounding success, Phase One resulted in improved technology contributing to published stories translated into a half-dozen languages and garnering well over 100M impressions.
Arizona State University’s Consortium, Science & Policy Outcome
CSPO convened a workshop focused on using Earth system data for better decision making and improved outcomes. This workshop brought together representatives from leading boundary organizations (these are organizations committed to the knowledge exchange between science and decision making) in the area of climate science and decision-making from the government, academia, industry, and non-government sectors.
