Welcome to MCRN

Linking researchers across the US to develop the mathematics needed to better understand the Earth's climate

MCRN is a virtual organization that brings together leading researchers across the US to study the mathematics that underlies climate science. For essentially every question asked in climate science, a mathematical model is the vehicle for extrapolating into the future. MCRN, funded by a grant from the National Science Foundation, fosters research in climate process modeling, dynamics of climate, and data analysis and assimilation.

MCRN was a participating partner in "Mathematics of Planet Earth 2013." The Partner Reports of MCRN and many other participating partners are available at mpe2013.org/Reports-mpe2013. MPE2013 morphed into MPE on January 1, 2014. MPE will maintain the momentum of multilevel collaborations (researchers and educators) within the world mathematical community.
