Climate science shows drought is one of the many effects that will worsen as the climate continues to change. This photo depicts a drought land during the summer season, with sparse wheat crop plants in the soil.

The science of climate change continues to evolve and improve. EPIC’s scientists, statisticians, and economists are bridging interdisciplinary gaps to explore the science of climate change and rigorously identify its effects on society.

EPIC researchers are evaluating the range of effects the global community could experience as the climate continues to change, including rising temperatures, more frequent and intense storms, sea level rise, and related social consequences in health, energy use, and economic inequality.

EPIC scholars are among the leaders in creating and improving the scientific basis of a new generation of climate economic models, to pinpoint the possible effects of climate change, as well as the level of uncertainty that exists.
