Welcome to the Changing Cold Regions Network (CCRN) homepage.  CCRN is a collaborative research network bringing together the unique expertise of a team of over 50 university and government scientists, including 36 Canadian scientists representing 4 government agencies and 8 universities, as well as 15 international scientists.  The network is funded for 5 years (2013-18) through the Climate Change and Atmospheric Research (CCAR) Initiative of NSERC.

CCRN’s objectives are to integrate existing and new sources of data with improved predictive and observational tools to understand, diagnose and predict interactions amongst the cryospheric, ecological, hydrological, and climatic components of the changing Earth system at multiple scales, with a geographic focus on Western Canada’s rapidly changing cold interior.
