about the institute:

We speak English, French, Spanish, and Portuguese.


The Climate & Atmospheric Sciences Institute (CASI) is a multidisciplinary research institute whose primary objective is to facilitate and promote the advancement of fundamental research in areas of Climate, Atmospheric, and some aspects of Environmental Sciences, with a strong emphasis on post graduate student training through research.  CASI researchers and collaborators actively contribute to the training of future scientists through the sharing of their knowledge, experience and resources among researchers and institutions,  to facilitate the development of leading edge research in their areas of interest.

We have active collaborations with researchers in Canada, France, USA, Chile, Brasil, Argentina, Spain, Germany.

Some of our team members were associated with the Environmental Sciences Research Centre (2004-2011) and are also associated with a NSERC CREATE Training Program in Climate Sciences. Funding for Graduate students is available through this and other programs.
