BASC is a community of scientists studying the atmosphere, its interaction with Earth systems, and the future of Earth’s climate. Our mission of teaching, research, and public service is built on the UC Berkeley Principles of Community:

This “Principles of Community” statement was developed collaboratively by students, faculty, staff, and alumni, and issued by the Chancellor. Its intent is to serve as an affirmation of the intrinsic and unique value of each member of the UC Berkeley community and as a guide for our personal and collective behavior, both on campus and as we serve society.
