A diverse range of interdisciplinary research takes place across ClimateUEA. Read about some of the exciting projects we are working on below.
UEA has pioneered climate research for nearly 50 years. Our Climatic Research Unit and the Tyndall Centre for Climate Change Research have both broken new ground in understanding the global climate system and its implications for society, and continue to do so. Read more about the global impact that UEA climate research has made in this field since 1972.
In this critical climate decade for our planet, our world-leading climate experts collaborate and innovate to provide the vital research, solutions and insight needed to understand and minimise humankind’s impact on Earth’s climate and ecosystems.
Here, you can discover more about some of our pioneering climate change researchers and their latest projects, impact and ground-breaking work.
Collaboration is at the heart of ClimateUEA. Bringing together different expertise and perspectives, we work with our colleagues and partners as a multidisciplinary team to monitor the Earth’s climate and tackle the impact of climate change.
