University of Hawai'i chosen for new Climate Science Center
Date:10/7/2011

Secretary of the Interior Ken Salazar announced on October 7 the establishment of the Pacific Islands Climate Science Center, a consortium led by the University of Hawaii at Manoa, the University of Hawaii at Hilo, and the University of Guam. Together with two other new regional climate science centers, the Pacific Islands Climate Science Center will be part of a network of eight regional centers being established by the Department of the Interior. The centers will serve to provide land managers in federal, state and local agencies access to the best science available regarding climate change and other landscape-scale stressors impacting the nation's natural and cultural resources.

"Selecting the locations for the final three of our eight Climate Science Centers is a major milestone in our efforts to implement our department-wide climate change strategy," Secretary Salazar said. "The nationwide network of Climate Science Centers will provide the scientific talent and commitment necessary for understanding how climate change and other landscape stressors will change the face of the United States, and how the Department of the Interior, as our nation's chief steward of natural and cultural resources, can prepare and respond."

"The University of Hawaii is conducting groundbreaking research in the area of climate change, and we're excited to be recognized for our expertise in this area with the establishment of this climate science center," said UH President M.R.C. Greenwood. "Together with the University of Guam and other government and institutional partners, we will continue our efforts to understand the nature of climate systems and improve the predictability of climate change and variations, particularly as it affects the Asia Pacific region."

The university consortium for the Pacific Islands Climate Center will be led by Kevin Hamilton, director of the International Pacific Research Center (IPRC) at UH Manoa; Donald Price, direc
