The Center for Climate Systems Research is a key Columbia University Earth Institute center with over 25 scientists and staff researching issues involving the interplay between Earth's climate and society. The center's motto is Columbia's Gateway to NASA and Beyond, as it has a special relationship with the NASA Goddard Institute for Space Studies (GISS). It is a Gateway to NASA, because the center is co-located with GISS in Columbia University's Armstrong Hall above Tom's Restaurant in New York City. In this historic location, Columbia and NASA scientists work together closely to understand the Earth's climate and how changes can impact society both in the United States and around the world. Importantly, CCSR scientists also work with many other partners – governmental, private sector, and non-governmental organizations – to answer these challenging scientific and socioeconomic questions (i.e., and Beyond). Since late 2017, the director of CCSR has been Dr. Michael J. Puma.
