About the Goddard Institute for Space Studies

The NASA Goddard Institute for Space Studies (GISS) is a laboratory in the Earth Sciences Division (ESD) of National Aeronautics and Space Administration's Goddard Space Flight Center (GSFC). The ESD is part of GSFC's Sciences and Exploration Directorate.

A key objective of GISS research is prediction of atmospheric and climate changes in the 21st century. The research combines analysis of comprehensive global datasets with global models of atmospheric, land surface, and oceanic processes. Study of past climate change on Earth and of other planetary atmospheres serves as a useful tool in assessing our general understanding of the atmosphere and its evolution.

Program areas at GISS may be roughly divided into the categories of climate forcings, model development, Earth observations, radiation, atmospheric chemistry, climate impacts, paleoclimate, planetary atmospheres, and other disciplines. Due to their interconnections, most GISS personnel are engaged in research in several of these areas.

The perspective provided by space observations is crucial for monitoring global change and for providing data needed to develop an understanding of the Earth system. As the principal NASA center for Earth observations, Goddard Space Flight Center plays a leading role in global change research. Global change studies at GISS are coordinated with research at other offices and laboratories within the Earth Sciences Division.

GISS works cooperatively with area universities and research organizations, most notably with Columbia University. Many of our personnel are members of Columbia's Earth Institute, Center for Climate Systems Research (CCSR), Department of Earth and Environmental Sciences, and/or Department of Applied Physics and Applied Mathematics. We also collaborate with researchers and educators at Columbia's Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory, the City College of New York, the American Museum of Natural History, Stony Brook University, and elsewhere.
