Climate system and climate change remains a key area of research Climate system and climate change remains a key area of research

We study climate and paleo-climate records, components of the climate system, interactions between these components and climate predictions. We are well-known for our research on biogeochemical cycles, particularly nutrient and carbon flows and biogenic and greenhouse gases; atmospheric and ocean circulation especially in the polar regions and the tropics; and options for geo-engineering future climate.

The School operates three major centres which contribute to this theme:

Centre for Ocean and Atmospheric Sciences (COAS)

 

 

Climatic Research Unit

 

 

Tyndall Centre for Climate Change Research
