Currently, several research projects are ongoing to study our climate, including how it has changed over time and how it will continue to change.  NOAA's Climate Research Center is doing extensive research on national and global climate change.  Short-term and long-term predictions are being modeled by some of the latest and most sophisticated computer systems.  Closer to home here in Maryland, research scientists at the University of Maryland, College Park, are also conducting research related to global and regional climate change.  Below are links to current research being conducted in these areas.
