On September 6, the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) awarded Argonne and a team of academic and community leaders $25 million over five years to advance urban climate science by studying climate change effects at local and regional scales.

DOE Office of Science Director Dr. Asmeret Berhe chose Chicago to announce the new initiative, which will transform how Argonne does community-scale climate research and collaborations.

Argonne and partners will establish an Urban Integrated Field Laboratory called Community Research on Climate and Urban Science (CROCUS) focusing on the Chicago region.

The results of this new research will inform communities to build resilience to future effects of climate change and help ensure all communities move forward together as we advance to a clean-energy future
