Climate Adaptation Research Center
The Climate Adaptation Research Center (CARC) strives to facilitate multidisciplinary academic research, to engage with communities, businesses and policymakers, and to provide diverse learning experiences in order to identify, evaluate and advance solutions to adapt to a changing climate and deliver a resilient and prosperous world.
The UC Davis CARC’s vision is to lead climate adaptation research and education, as well as inform policy to achieve a world where community, industry, and government leaders have the knowledge and training they need to build a resilient, equitable, and thriving world in the face of climate change
Air Quality Research Center
The AQRC mission is to facilitate research on the scientific, engineering, health, social and economic aspects of gaseous and particulate atmospheric pollutants. Air pollution research and education at UC Davis focus on urban and regional smog, indoor air quality, global climate change, health and environmental effects, and intermedia transfers. Investigations span both gaseous and particulate forms of air pollution, and employ theoretical, numerical, experimental, and policy approaches. Many departments, laboratories, faculty, staff, and students are employed solving these air pollution problems in the service of industry, state and federal governments, and non-profit organizations.
The AQRC vision for the future is to continue to inform policy to facilitate cost-effective improvements to air quality on a local, regional, state, national and global scale.
