NCAS Air Quality Science Programme

The role of NCAS Composition is to perform core strategic research into atmospheric composition, to facilitate and coordinate research in this area, and to integrate that research into relevant activities in the National Centre for Atmospheric Science (NCAS) and in NERC as a whole. Initially, research will be focused on formation, transformation and removal of aerosols, and production, transport and removal of photochemical oxidants.

Research staff has been appointed to perform core strategic research in the target areas identified in the Science Plan: Aerosols, Photochemical Oxidants and Urban Air Quality.
