UH expands partnerships on climate prediction researchUniversity of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa
International Pacific Research Center
The IPRC, a part of the School of Ocean and Earth Science and Technology (SOEST) at the University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa, conducts research to gain greater understanding of the climate system and the nature and causes of climate variations in the Asia-Pacific region. It also investigates how global climate changes may affect the region. Established under the "U.S.-Japan Common Agenda for Cooperation in Global Perspective" in October 1997, the IPRC is a collaborative effort between the University of Hawaiʻi and agencies in Japan and the United States.
The APEC Climate Center offers skillful real-time climate predictions for APEC member economies, shares costly climate data and information, and builds capacity in climate prediction and its application. The center aims to be a major catalyst towards social and economic prosperity among member economies by developing and applying innovative climate prediction techniques to mitigate climate-related damages and by developing methods to adapt to climate fluctuations and change.
