£12m invested in climate change modelling

A new climate change programme will be designed to remove variabilities thrown up by cloud cover, the UK’s Natural Environment Research Council (NERC) has announced.

Since April this year, NERC became part of UK Research & Innovation – a new organisation that brings together the UK's seven research councils.

It is investing £12m from its core budget into the modelling programme.

This is because cloud feedbacks are a “fundamental and persistent problem in climate science and are the dominant uncertainty in assessing global and regional climate sensitivity,” according to the NERC.
