We are world leaders in atmospheric science and innovation

The National Centre for Atmospheric Science is a world leading research centre, funded by the Natural Environment Research Council. We are dedicated to the advancement of atmospheric science.

Our research falls into three key areas. These are air pollution, climate and high-impact weather and long-term global changes in our atmosphere. 

We also provide the UK with state-of-the-art services for observing and modelling the atmosphere. These include a research aircraft, advanced ground-based observational facilities, computer modelling and support, and facilities for storing and analysing data

We play a significant and influential role in many international science programmes and provide advice, leadership and national capability in atmospheric science.
