For the first time, 2020 ranked in the top ten years for temperature, rain, and sunshine.
We seek to understand our atmosphere, how it is changing, and how it impacts life on earth.
We address global challenges, through our science and our services, helping society adapt to environmental change.
Record-shattering heatwaves could become two to seven times more frequent across the world than in the last 30 years.
Scientists have kick-started an intense six-week air pollution monitoring schedule, aiming to pinpoint new and emerging pollution trends.
This year, the Atmospheric Science Conference will take place as a series of three online events with the overarching theme of ‘Atmospheric Science for Solutions’. The virtual conference takes place on 22 June, 6 July, and 21 September.
It is proudly hosted by the National Centre for Atmospheric Science and the Royal Meteorological Society.

The Atmospheric Measurement and Observation Facility is aiming to submit a community call for funding, in order to secure the future of the facility.
The Introduction to UKCA course will return for 2021 in a new, online format for PhD students and early career researchers.
Our strategy sets out our commitment to help solve the challenges of climate change, air pollution and weather hazards. Discover how our goals will help society rise to the challenges ahead.
Human exposure to air pollution is a significant global environmental burden. By improving society’s knowledge of air pollution, we contribute towards improving air quality and reducing its impacts on people and economic development.
Weather such as storms, heatwaves and cold spells can impact water resources, infrastructure, agriculture and public health. To mitigate these risks, we contribute towards improved early warnings, risk assessments and further knowledge on climate change.
Human activities are now the major driver of changes in the atmosphere and its interactions with the earth’s climate. To inform adaptation and mitigation policies, we provide robust scientific evidence on how our atmosphere is changing.
