Climate Systems Laboratory

An academic-led research centre at the University of Auckland to produce research and engagement in New Zealand’s scientific community to tackle climate change. 

Upcoming Event - Early Career Engagement Session

Penciled in for June 2022, details to be released soon.

Mitigating, adapting to and managing anthropogenic climate change will be one of the defining features of the 21st Century. Knowledge of the mechanisms which control environmental change is essential to establish robust climate adaption and mitigation policy, that in turn ensures the well-being of all people. There is a critical lack of focused expertise and training in quantitative climate science in New Zealand, which is needed to meet this challenge. Creation of the Climate Systems Laboratory aims to address this need.

The Climate Systems Laboratory connects research and researchers in critical areas of atmospheric, oceanic, terrestrial ecosystem, cryosphere, carbon cycle sciences, sensor technologies, environmental informatics, and computational sciences. Researchers draw on expertise in numerical analysis and modelling, advanced observational methods and processing, and development of natural systems-understanding that can guide thought on approaches to addressing climate and environmental change.
