The Climate Change Research Centre (abbreviated CCRC) is a research initiative established in 2008 at the University of New South Wales.[1] The foundation Directors of the CCRC were the Australian Research Council (ARC) Federation Fellow Professor Matthew England, who established the Climate and Environmental Dynamics Laboratory in 2005, and Professor Andrew Pitman, the Director of the ARC Centre of Excellence for Climate System Science. The current Director is Professor Steven Sherwood (an ARC Laureate Fellow).

The Centre's research falls into ten broad categories:

  • Climate
  • Oceanography
  • Atmospheric Science
  • Ecosystems
  • Carbon Cycle
  • Terrestrial Processes
  • Climate Impacts
  • Energy Policy
  • Climate Model Evaluation
  • Palaeoclimatology

The CCRC is the University of New South Wales lead of the Australian Research Council's Centre of Excellence for Climate System Science (2011–2018).[2]
