National Centre for Atmospheric Science

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. Our Strategy 2020 – 2025 outlines our dedication to advancing atmospheric science, our goals, and our values.

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.
