Facilities and Services
The support programmes that NCAS provides to the UK atmospheric science community make up the four facilities and services, known as support programmes.
These are provided for use across the atmospheric science community (not just for NCAS science) and enable atmospheric scientists to utilise the latest technologies and techniques. The services and facilities includes a state-of-the-art atmospheric research aircraft, an extensive equipment pool of instrumentation for ground-based and airborne measurements, computational models and training, data storage and access.
