The Centre for Atmospheric Sciences studies processes important to climate change and air quality in the troposphere and lower stratosphere – the lowest 20 km of the Earth’s atmosphere.
Data science techniques within environmental and earth sciences drive studies from the molecular to global scale. Better understanding the history, future and present challenges facing our planet - including our role in that evolution - requires techniques that probe fundamental hypotheses. These can provide new insights into key drivers of change. Environmental science is a highly multi-disciplinary field. As such, technologies we require are both responsive to developments from specific fields, such as mathematics or computer science, and developed in response to new experimental and/or modelling facilities. More generally these techniques bridge work from both experimental facilities and modelling facilities.
