Institute for Climate and Atmospheric Science (ICAS)

Welcome to ICAS

ICAS conducts internationally leading research on the physical and chemical processes that govern the behaviour of the Earth's atmosphere and climate. We conduct field campaigns, analyse satellite data, and perform laboratory experiments. We also make use of, and develop, advanced numerical models. We work with colleagues across the University (particularly in the Schools of Chemistry and Geography) and we collaborate with leading UK, European and international institutions to make fundamental advances in the atmospheric sciences that help us forecast severe weather and understand changes in air quality and climate.
