The Centre of Excellence for Modelling the Atmosphere and Climate (CEMAC) is a major new venture to substantially enhance the research, teaching, impact and outreach capabilities of the Institute for Climate and Atmospheric Science (ICAS), related to computer modelling, data analysis and visualisation. The use and development of advanced models of weather, climate and air pollution in ICAS is extraordinarily broad and ambitious. We conduct modelling of complex processes in atmospheric physics and chemistry using a range of platforms from local clusters to the largest High Performance Computing facilities. ICAS’s research feeds into international assessments such as the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change and we work very closely with many UK and international research institutions and with the Met Office developing their models for climate projections and high-impact weather prediction.
CEMAC aims to be the UK’s leading centre of excellence in atmospheric and climate modelling, significantly enhancing and accelerating the high impact research of ICAS, and aiming to improve the quality of learning for students across the School of Earth & Environment. CEMAC will rival the best international examples of how model and data support and strategy is organised in computing-intensive research institutions.
