Discovery Grant: Climate Change and Atmospheric Research

The health and safety of Canadians and the strength of the Canadian economy rely on advancing our understanding of climate and the risks related to climate change, and on the development of effective policies that will allow us to anticipate and respond to these risks in a timely manner. Climate Change and Atmospheric Research (CCAR) Grants will capitalize on Canada’s world-class research capacity in key areas of climate and atmospheric research and innovation. Research will generate knowledge of the physical, chemical and biogeochemical processes related to the climate and atmospheric system and enable application of this knowledge toward understanding and predicting weather and climate. This research forms the basis for conducting further studies and assessments of the social, economic and ecological impacts of climate change and for developing strategies and adaptation mechanisms. The knowledge generated will provide the foundation for measures that save money and improve the lives of Canadians.
