The University of Texas at Austin announced in October 2017 that it would invest institutionally in a multi-year research grand challenge focused on more accurately predicting future scenarios for Texas, given the dual stressors of weather extremes
and rapid urbanization. This research initiative, also titled “Planet Texas 2050,” involves faculty and staff researchers from UT’s Jackson School of Geosciences, Environmental Science Institute, Bureau of Economic Geology, School of Architecture, College
of Liberal Arts, Cockrell School of Engineering, Dell Medical School, and 9 additional academic units on campus.
