All CMI scheduled meetings are being held virtually. CMI faculty, staff and students should continue to check the Princeton University homepage for University-wide updates.

This year’s report provides an overview of new research on realizing net-zero emissions of greenhouse gases in the United States; enhancing the understanding of the role that soil carbon plays in the global carbon cycle; and addressing critical unknowns in methane cycling.

2018 ended with a successful effort to renew CMI through 2025 and the launch of a large project on net-zero greenhouse gas-emitting infrastructure for the United States. Progress continued with numerous other research initiatives including: soil carbon, methane, extreme weather events, climate modelling of oceans and terrestrial ecosystems, carbon capture and storage, and battery technology.

New research on methane sources and sinks in the atmosphere and on land is underway along with the study of surface waves at the interface between the atmosphere and ocean waters. Both of these new initiatives add to the reporting on ongoing efforts to identify risks and opportunities posed by the carbon program.

The 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 2015 and provided context for the work.
