Centre for Atmospheric Science

The Centre for Atmospheric Science (CAS)

CAS is a joint venture within the University of Cambridge. It was created by the university departments of Chemistry, Applied Mathematics and Theoretical Physics, and Geography. 

We are one of the premier research groups in the UK for atmospheric research. Post-doctoral researchers and students from the UK and abroad carry out world-leading research with international collaborations, and we attract funding from a wide range of sources. 

Our research groups include the Atmospheric Chemistry Research Group (ACRG) led by Professor Alexander Archibald and the Climate Change Policy Group (CCPG) led by Dr Annela Anger-Kraavi.



Affiliates and Collaborators:

Due to the diverse range of research conducted here at CAS, we have many affiliates and collaborators from all over the world.

•  The ACRG's group leader, Prof Alexander Archibald, works closely with the National Centre of Atmospheric Science (NCAS).

•  The CCPG works closely with collaborators from across the globe as part of the PARIS REINFORCE and I2AM PARIS projects, including universities such as École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne, the National Technical University of Athens and Imperial College London.
