Science 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.
Technology Studies energy conversion in conjunction with CO2 capture and storage. Capture studies include both biological and fossil fuel inputs. Storage studies emphasize leakage pathways and now also investigate storage in shales. The program on advanced batteries continues.
Integration 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.

Seventeenth Year Annual Report

Annual Report 2016The hallmark of CMI’s research is connectivity across science, technology, and policy to offer an integrated assessment of Earth system science, carbon mitigation options, and societal responses. In this report, each investigator or teams of investigators featured one research highlight from 2017 and provided context for the work.
