UC Santa Barbara geographer Chris Funk and colleagues have launched the UCSB Climate Hazards Center (CHC), which sits within the geography department. The center, primarily funded by the USGS/USAID and NASA, connects a team of top notch scientists and programmers at UC Santa Barbara with an international team of field scientists in Africa and Central America. 

The center will bring more permanence to their work to get ahead of famine, while also expanding their efforts to include other climate-related monitoring and disaster-mitigating activities. Currently, the center team combines advanced researchers, scientific programmers and editors, fields scientists and graduate students.
