NCEO Theme 1: Climate
This Theme of the National Centre for Earth Observation aims to exploit EO to improve national capability for climate prediction over timescales from months to decades.
Its priorities are to:
- Compare how computer models represent water vapour, clouds and the Earth's radiation budget with satellite data
- Combine ocean-surface data from space with data taken from instruments on-board ships and subsurface ocean monitoring networks to understand changes in ocean circulation and ocean warming
- Improve how climate models represent cryosphere interactions with the oceans and atmosphere
- Improve how climate models represent the land surface, including life processes, and the resulting heat, water and gas exchanges with the atmosphere
