Research, Scholarship and Innovation

The Climate Change Hub catalyzes interdisciplinary research among University of Delaware climate scholars as well as facilitates collaborations with external institutions.

The Climate Change Hub includes representatives across disciplines to understand and address climate change and its impacts, from climate science and engineering to social sciences, environmental humanities, and the arts in responding to a changing world. All solutions and actions are oriented toward creating future leaders, informing policy, providing insight into mitigation and adaptation strategies, and creating tools to respond to climate change impacts. The Mid-Atlantic, and the Delmarva Peninsula in particular, provides a natural laboratory due to the confluence of urbanization, energy and transportation, agriculture,and coastal issues.

The solutions developed here yield discoveries applicable around the world. Already, Climate Change Hub faculty conduct research around the globe providing the latest innovative solutions to climate change challenges.
