    Partners: ARL, University of Bergen, NOC, MET

    In 2006 scientists from the UK's National Oceanography Centre, Southampton (NOCS) installed additional sensors to measure the rate at which the atmosphere and ocean exchange heat, CO2 and momentum. The behaviour of theses exchanges or 'fluxes' is complicated and is affe...

  • project . 2020 - 2024
    Funder: UKRI Project Code: NE/T006773/1
    Funder Contribution: 388,926 GBP
    Partners: University of Reading, Met Office, OCU, ECMWF, MET, Naval Research Lab Monterey

    As climate has warmed in response to increasing greenhouse gases, the distribution of Arctic sea ice has changed dramatically, becoming thinner over large portions of the Arctic Ocean basin in summer with a prominent reduction of the September minimum in sea ice extent....

    Air pollution is the environmental factor with the greatest impact on human health in Europe. Despite substantial emission controls, the complexities of the processes linking emissions and air quality, means that substantial proportions - 80% and 97%, respectively, of t...

  • project . 2010 - 2014
    Funder: UKRI Project Code: NE/H008187/1
    Funder Contribution: 324,216 GBP

    By modifying the amount of solar radiation absorbed at the land surface, bright snow and dark forests have strong influences on weather and climate; either a decrease in snow cover or an increase in forest cover, which shades underlying snow, increases the absorption of...

  • project . 2021 - 2025
    Funder: UKRI Project Code: NE/W004747/1
    Funder Contribution: 2,035,800 GBP
    Partners: University of Manitoba, Alfred Wegener Inst for Polar & Marine R, ASE, MET, NERC British Antarctic Survey, Australian Antarctic Division, UCLA, National Centre for Polar and Ocean Rese, OSU, Met Office...

    Since the start of the industrial revolution the CO2 concentration in the atmosphere has steadily risen. Scientists have confirmed that the recent loss of Arctic sea ice in summer directly follows this rise in human-induced CO2 emissions, reducing from about 7 million k...
