Science Products and Services
Scientific publications provide the best measure of CIRES on-going productivity as a premier research institute at the University of Colorado at Boulder and within the NOAA's laboratories in Boulder. CIRES scientists and faculty published over 500 scholarly papers during FY 2003. Other valuable outcomes of scientific work within the Institute include data products, maps and atlases, models and model output, science policy and education products, as well as scientific assessments and online products. In addition, a valuable collection of images from expeditions and field campaigns is available here. The CIRES instrumentation facility has designed and produced instruments for science users at universities, government laboratories, and corporations around the world.
Past and present CIRES employees hold many patents. CIRES Fellow Robert E. Sievers alone has claimed more than 30 patents, many of which have been licensed. Staff of CIRES' Center for Science and Technology Policy Research [ About the Center ] produce peer-reviewed publications, books, magazine and newspaper articles, a newsletter, an extensive web site of their own, weblog, and Web-based products like the Climate Services Clearinghouse. As education is central to the CIRES' mission, our scientists, education and outreach professionals, and others often produce information products for educators, students, and the general public. Many of these education products are Web-based. For a sample of these, see this list of education resources in environmental sciences.
