Introduction to COAS Introduction to COAS

Research ship at sea by Dorothee BakkerCOAS researchers in the School are at the forefront of scientific studies to better understand the vital role which the atmosphere and oceans play in the functioning of the Earth System. COAS brings together scientists researching the physics and chemistry of the atmosphere and the physics and biogeochemistry of the oceans, and also the critical interactions of air-sea exchange that link these two vast reservoirs of the Earth System.  Sea Ice by Tim JickellsThe COAS biogeochemical research scales from the cellular to the global scale and the physical science research ranges from urban pollution to global and even planetary scales. Details of the research and publications of individual faculty can be found on individual faculty’s webpages. COAS scientists often work together in larger research programmes both within COAS and across Environmental Sciences (ENV).  Find out more about our staff...
