    Our flagship stakeholder-driven climate programs

Welcome to the University of Arizona Use-inspired Climate Science Lab! The goal of our UCLIMS Lab, under the leadership of Professor Jonathan “Peck” Overpeck, is to carry out cutting-edge climate research that supports decision-making in society in efforts to factor in climate. Our work is not policy- or decision-prescriptive, but rather is focused on understanding climate challenges and potential solutions. Find out more by exploring this website.
