The National Centre for Atmospheric Science

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.

Looking ahead, our Research and Innovation Strategy sets out in more detail how we will respond to emerging scientific challenges, seek new partnerships, and influence solutions that assist business, policy makers and society with tackling many of the biggest environmental issues of our time.
