|Carbon Science Group||Collects data from the oceans, the atmosphere, ice cores, and the land biosphere to study how natural sources and sinks of carbon have varied in recent and ancient times, and how they will respond to future climatic change.|
|Low-Carbon Energy Group||Studies the production of power and fuels from fossil fuels with CO2 capture, biomass as an energy source on its own and combined with fossil fuels, wind power, and batteries for power and storage.|
|Fluids & Energy Group||Studies potential risks of injecting CO2 underground for permanent storage. Models of subsurface carbon dioxide behavior and laboratory studies of well cement degradation are helping the group evaluate that risk.|
|Policy & Integration Group||Synthesizes research discoveries and explores the policy implications of carbon mitigation strategies. It also works to communicate issues of carbon and climate to industry, government, NGO's and the general public.|
2014 marked another renewal of CMI carrying the program forward through 2020 including a growing component to address climate variability, advancing research in energy conversion with CO2 capture and storage, and introducing new conceptual frameworks to inform climate change policy.
