Institute for Climate and Atmospheric Science

Institute for Climate and Atmospheric Science

We are making fundamental advances in our understanding of climate change, weather, atmospheric composition, palaeo-climates, and impacts on our planet and society. We develop advanced computer models, lead major field campaigns, analyse satellite data, and perform innovative laboratory experiments.

We play a significant role in the Centre of Excellence for Modelling the Atmosphere and Climate, which aims to be the UK’s leading centre of excellence in atmospheric and climate modelling and complex data exploitation. Its vision is to significantly enhance and accelerate our high impact research in weather, climate and atmospheric composition, and to train and educate a new generation of students and scientists in the latest techniques in scientific computing and data processing and visualisation.

If you would like to discuss an area of research in more detail, please contact the Institute Director: Professor Martyn Chipperfield.
