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

tor of the Tropical Conservation Biology and Environmental Science (TCBES) graduate program at UH Hilo; and Frank Camacho, executive director of the Center for Island Sustainability at the University of Guam. Key contributions to the development of the successful proposal were provided by Charles "Chip" Fletcher, associate dean of UH Manoa's School of Ocean and Earth Science and Technology (SOEST), UH Manoa Professor of Geography Thomas Giambelluca, and Samuel Walker, institutional researcher for Renewable/Alternative Energy Management at the University of Guam.

"The new climate center will serve as a resource for federal agencies and other stakeholders in providing the necessary science input into policy decisions. It will also support research and graduate student training on a variety of environmental concerns with a primary scientific focus on understanding the effects of climate change and variability on island ecosystems," said Hamilton.

Hamilton noted further that he is "particularly excited to see the new center closely linked with the long-established climate research center at Manoa, the IPRC. The IPRC focuses principally on basic research in climate variability and change as manifested in the physical properties of the atmosphere and ocean, while the new center will facilitate study of a broader range of fundamental and applied topics related to climate."

The center will also expand on the partnership between the federal, state and non-government agencies and the Tropical Conservation Biology and Environmental Science graduate program at UH Hilo.

"This partnership will focus on the impact of climate change on the unique biodiversity in the Pacific region," said Price.

The Pacific Islands Climate Science Center will directly involve both university and federal personnel. The university consortium anticipates initial funding exceeding $3 million over five years. Over time, the Department of the Interior will s
