Adirondack Research is focused on monitoring and mitigating the effects of environmental stressors attributed to climate change. We are a leader in climate change research and planning.

As Earth’s climate warms, the potential for negative impacts on human resources and infrastructure, wildlife habitats, and ecosystems increases. Adirondack Research works with regional agencies and other partners to further research on the current and possible future effects of climate change.
