Climate Center

Climate change poses an existential threat to coastal communities as we know them.

Our climate center supports local, state, national, and global climate actions that will empower coastal communities to thrive in a warmer world. This interdisciplinary center leverages the Gulf of Maine Research Institute's unique mix of science, education, and community expertise to provide forward-looking leadership.

We deliver climate services that advance the following goals:

  • Empowering coastal communities with localized data and strategies to address their climate risks.
  • Mobilizing business leaders to develop climate solutions in the private sector.
  • Helping fishermen and fisheries managers identify climate-resilient strategies for the future.
  • Leveraging innovative financial tools and information to turn climate knowledge into action.
