COVID-19 UPDATE

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.

During 2016, CMI research efforts continued improving the understanding of carbon sinks in the ocean and on land, enhancing prediction of extreme weather under climate change, and explored means for reaching carbon neutrality.

In 2015, CMI was restructured to form three research work groups: Science, Technology, and Integration and Outreach.

CMI lead investigators reported on recent research advances in terrestrial and ocean carbon science, carbon capture and sequestration, climate science, and carbon targets.

From the future fate of carbon sinks to strategies for making “negative emission” transportation fuels, CMI research in 2013 closed in on answers to old questions and also applied existing tools to new problems.

After an infusion of new faculty in 2011, CMI has an even stronger program with new areas of research that complement established efforts.

2011 was a year of growth for CMI. Long-term members continued to refine and apply tools developed in our first decade to better understand CO2 capture and storage, natural carbon sinks, and carbon policy, while also striking out in new directions.

Over its first decade, CMI has accomplished many of its original goals by creating tools to address critical questions about the efficacy and cost of carbon capture and storage and the impacts of climate change on natural carbon sinks.
