The Pacific Islands Climate Science Center was established by the Department of the Interior on October 7, 2011, as a consortium led by the University of Hawai‘i at Mānoa, the University of Hawai‘i at Hilo, and the University of Guam. The Pacific Islands Climate Science Center is part of a network of eight regional centers established by the DOI. The mission is to provide land managers in federal, state and local agencies access to the best science available on climate change and other landscape-scale stressors that are impacting the nation’s natural and cultural resources.
