Research partnerships

The National Centre for Atmospheric Science has formed important partnerships with research organisations across the world.

We support and foster the atmospheric science community, and seek to advance the application of atmospheric science together.

UK partnerships

The National Centre for Atmospheric Science has formed key research partnerships in the UK, including with the Met Office and the Environment Agency.

We have undertaken independent reviews for BBC weather forecasting, and emissions monitoring for oil company Total.

International partnerships

Internationally, we have formed strong links with leading organisations.

We are closely tied to the U.S National Centre for Atmospheric Research, especially in regards to climate models.

In Africa, we are involved with pioneering weather research, bringing together researchers from universities and meteorological institutions in Kenya, Nigeria and Senegal.

In Europe, we have links with many major research centres. We were responsible for leading the scientific investigation into the Icelandic Eyjafjallajokull volcanic eruption, a major global incident.

In 2018, the International Panel for Climate Change (IPCC) invited five climate experts from the National Centre for Atmospheric Science and our projects to participate in their sixth assessment report. This report helped to update and inform the Paris Agreement.
