Who we are

Irreversible Climate Change Research Center (IRCC) was established in June 2018, as part of the Science Research Center program of the National Research Foundation of Korea. There is a great deal of uncertainty about the damage that climate change will cause, and we aim to improve our scientific understanding of tipping points which would lead to irreversible climate changes. Eight laboratories from four different universities are participating in this project. 

Our Mission

To understand the conditions and mechanisms of "irreversible" climate change and evaluate its predictability.

To diagnose climatic, environmental, and extreme weather responses in East Asia to global irreversible phenomena.
