Centre for Global Atmospheric Modelling

Lead Research Organisation: NERC National Ctr for Atmospheric Sci

Abstract

NCAS was created by the Natural Environment Research Council (NERC) in 2002 to provide NERC and the UK academic and government research communities with national capability in Atmospheric Science. This includes the provision of services and major facilities, plus a coordinated research programme which is responsive to NERC needs. Initially NCAS was called the Natural Environment Research Council Centres for Atmospheric Science, reflecting the historical beginnings as a number of separate NERC centres and programmes. Before NCAS was created, NERC supported these atmospheric science centres: 1) the Centre for Global Atmospheric Modelling (CGAM) - focusing on climate science;2) the Universities Weather Research Network (UWERN) - focusing on the science of weather;3) the Atmospheric Chemistry Modelling Support Unit (ACMSU) - focusing on global atmospheric composition;5) the Universities' Facilities for Atmospheric Measurement (UFAM) - providing ground-based facilities for atmospheric observations;6) he British Atmospheric Data Centre (BADC) - providing data services
