Major ongoing projects coordinated by the Center for Geological and Climate Hazards include:


An NSF supported UB managed platform designed to make ice sheet research more accessible to all. The Ghub science gateway hosts datasets, workflows, and tools to unify ice sheet observations and modeling, provide uncertainty quantification, and improve estimates of future sea level rise. This centralized hub is for all different types of ice sheet scientist, from those new to ice sheets to seasoned researchers, and for educators interested in ice sheet science.


An NSF supported, UB managed platform for online modeling, data and resource sharing, and collaboration related to volcanology and volcanic hazards. See the Vhub website.

Geohazards Field Station

Building an infrastructure for a user facility for large-scale experimental studies of processes associated with geological hazards, such as volcanic eruptions and mass flows. See Geohazards Field Station.

Persistent Volcanic Crises Resilience in the Face of Prolonged and Uncertain Risk (Hazard SEES)

Coordinating NSF-funded project linking volcanology, social science, and statistics to better understand long-term volcanic hazards and to improve integration of science with stakeholders.  Involves University of Hawaii, UC Berkeley, Duke University, Eastern Tennessee State University, and Marquette University, in collaboration with the US Geological Survey volcano observatories.
