CSAP scientists are researching the complex interactions among climate processes, ecosystems, and health in order to reduce impacts of climate change on human health and the health of the planet. This research will also help to:

  1. Determine appropriate adaptations to potential threats to human health
  2. Sort out the complex relationships between climate and ecosystems
  3. Help educate the next generation of researchers in these complex, interwoven areas
