Description Man-made climate change has been estimated to cost the UK economy from five to twenty per cent of Gross Domestic Product (GDP) every year1 amounting to £80-320 billion for 2011 GDP2. The NERC National Oceanography Centre (NOC) is providing impartial, independent, world-leading expertise in developing the UK / international scientific consensus that underpins the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) series of Assessment Reports. This expertise is complemented by the RAPID-WATCH programme, led by NOC, an international endeavour that provides the only comprehensive measure of changes in the Atlantic meridional overturning circulation (AMOC).
