Much of the work of the laboratory is directed towards improving projections of climate change on the time scale of decades to centuries based on scenarios of carbon emissions, sulfur emissions, land use changes, and other anthropogenic (human-caused) forcing agents. Closely related work focuses on the attribution of observed climate change to various forcing agents, both anthropogenic and natural.
