With the wider world increasingly waking up to the threats posed by climate change, our climate researchers are leading the way in tackling the key questions being raised.
Whether examining the impact of a two- or three-degree-warmer world or exploring the likelihood of a worsening of the UK’s wintertime flooding, our academics are shaping policy and strengthening society’s climate resilience.
The subject’s global importance is reflected in the Division’s research, with UK-based projects such as assessing the impact of climate change on the flood risk to London sitting alongside internationally-focused work centred on the Sahara, South West Asia and the Arctic.
Much of our research sits at the interface between weather and climate and we work alongside the Weather and Earth Observation & Space Research Divisions to address this growing area. We also collaborate closely with influential groups including the Met Office and the National Centre for Atmospheric Science.
