Centre for Atmospheric Science

The Centre for Atmospheric Science is a joint venture within the University of Cambridge between the University Departments of Chemistry, Applied Mathematics and Theoretical Physics and Geography.

The Centre is one of the premier research groups in the UK for atmospheric research and attracts funding from a wide range of sources. Post-doctoral researchers and students from the UK and abroad carry out world-leading research with international collaborations.

Our research groups include the Atmospheric Chemistry Research Group (ACRG) and the Climate Change Policy Group (CCPG).
