The UKESM project brings together the unique climate modelling capabilities of the Met Office Hadley Centre (MOHC) with a wealth of advanced Earth system modelling (ESM) and observational capabilities from 8 NERC centres (NCAS, BAS, BGS, CEH, CPOM, NCEO, NOC and PML). Carried out in active collaboration with the broader NERC research community, the project […]
