On This Page



The Center for Science in the Earth System (CSES), which includes the Climate Impacts Group and the Office of the Washington State Climatologist, is housed in John M. Wallace Hall at the University of Washington in Seattle. The CIG offices are primarily located on the first (ground) floor of the building across from the UW's Program on the Environment offices. Additional offices are located on the second floor.

(Note: Wallace Hall was previously named the Academic Computing Center, or ACC, on UW campus maps. Campus maps still use the "ACC" acronym.)
