A new US National Virtual Climate Laboratory (NVCL) connecting ecosystems working on climate science projects funded by the Department of Energy (DOE) is now online.
The NVCL portal gives researchers, students, organisations and others a place where they can access ‘experts, programs, projects, activities, and user facilities that are engaged in climate research’.
“Climate science impacts everyone, and we need everyone’s voice to make a difference,” said Asmeret Asefaw Berhe, DOE’s Office of Science Director. “The NVCL brings our climate information together in one accessible place, unifying communities, scientists, and students in developing solutions.”
The new virtual lab will include a ‘continually updated database of resources’ and ‘facilitate climate training opportunities for students, faculty, and early career scientists’.
“With the launch of the NVCL portal, we will have the ability to get DOE climate science into the hands of underrepresented researchers and students in the climate field,” added Cristina Negri, NVCL project lead.
