What is UKCA?
UKCA is a community chemistry-aerosol-climate model based around the Met Office Unified Model (UM), and is developed jointly by the Met Office and the Universities of Cambridge, Leeds, and Oxford. UKCA will be the atmospheric composition module of the joint NERC-Met Office Earth System Model UKESM1 and is used by the Met Office to provide operational 5-day air quality forecasts for the U.K.
