Our Partners


  • Institute for Arctic and Alpine Research (INSTARR)

    As the University of Colorado - Boulder's oldest institute, INSTAAR has a long history of responding to pressing environmental issues. INSTAAR has traditionally focused on polar and alpine regions. Recently, research has broadened to include local, regional, and global environmental challenges, including climate change. INSTAAR is made up of more than 225 people including research scientists, professional scientists, post-doctoral scholars, and graduate students. Also included are visiting scientists and research affiliates from USGS, NCAR, NOAA, NEON, other universities, and private companies. www.instaar.colorado.edu

  • National Snow and Ice Data Center (NSIDC)

    NSIDC supports research into our world's frozen realms: the snow, ice, glaciers, frozen ground, and climate interactions that make up Earth's cryosphere. NSIDC scientists travel to Antarctica, Greenland, the Arctic Ocean, and the Arctic tundra to conduct field work in some of the harshest conditions on Earth. They drill ice cores, study the lay of the land beneath the Antarctic Ice Sheet, and explore first-hand how climate change is affecting the polar regions. NSIDC distributes more than 500 cryospheric data sets for researchers.  www.nsidc.org

  • Cooperative Institute for Research in Environmental Sciences (CIRES)

    As the largest of the NOAA Joint Institutes program, CIRES identifies and pursues innovative research in Earth System Science. Its focus is on interdisciplinary research targeted at all aspects of Earth System Science and to communicating these findings to the global scientific community, to decision-makers, and to the public. CIRES researchers explore all aspects of the earth system and search for ways to better understand how natural and human-made disturbances impact our dynamic planet. www.cires.colorado.edu
