United Kingdom Chemistry and Aerosols (UKCA) Model

, it began as a joint project between the Met Office and the Universities of Cambridge and Leeds. Since then, contributions to UKCA are also being provided by work at the Universities of Oxford, Reading, East Anglia and Lancaster. For further information on UKCA, see UKCA hosted by the University
