Foundation science

Deep convective cloud – cumulonimbus – reaches the tropopause and spreads out.

Foundation Science provides the underpinning science and model development critical to both weather and climate prediction.

Foundation Science brings together those areas of Research and Development which are fundamental to Met Office excellence
across both weather and climate prediction. It includes much of the work developing and evaluating the global Unified Model which is at the heart of our activities, and ensures that we gain maximum benefit from taking a seamless approach to science and prediction.
