Goddard Institute for Space Studies (GISS) is a world leader in the study understanding, assessment, and prediction of global climate change & in the dissemination of this knowledge to the general public. With a climate model that integrates atmospheric, land, & oceanographic models and runs on state of the art parallel processing supercomputers at Goddard Space Flight Center (GSFC), GISS develops not only climate forecasts for the next decades but also performs paleoclimate studies of the earth as well as studies of exoplanets. GISS maintains preeminence in the field by conducting unbiased research while disseminating research results to some politically sensitive segments of society. Having supported world-renowned institutions like Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) and The European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN). SciSpace is excited to have been awarded the GISS contract.
SciSpace is a joint venture between Business Integra (BI), the majority partner, a SBA Certified 8(a) company, & d3i Systems (d3i), a SBA 8(m) company.
