The Earth System Research Laboratory's mission is to observe and understand the Earth system and to develop products through a commitment to research that will advance the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration's (NOAA's) environmental information and services on global-to-local scales.

The work at the Earth System Research Laboratory includes:

  • understanding the roles of gases and particles that contribute to climate change,
  • providing climate information related to water management decisions,
  • improving weather prediction,
  • understanding the recovery of the stratospheric ozone layer, and
  • developing air quality forecast models.

The Earth System Research Laboratory is the result of the consolidation of six organizations of NOAA Research in Boulder, Colorado, into a single center . This consolidation substantially improves the research and execution of the organizations by having four more-focused Divisions – Global Monitoring, Physical Sciences, Chemical Sciences, and Global Systems – and a more effective and coordinated management structure. The consolidation also will result in better integration of science through the development of research and technology themes that are being developed across Divisions.
