Climate Prediction Programme - GA01012

Description
The programme deals with the indentification and causes of climate change; prediction of future change, both globally and regionally; improving the understanding of basic processes to reduce uncertainty (e.g. clouds and radiation); research on rapiod climate change (e.g. behaviour of the North Atlantic circulation). It also provides a focal point for bi-ringing national and international research to bear on the policy process. It supports our bilateral projects in China and India and it is one prominent aspect of the UK`s commitment to dealing with climate change.
