Climate Change in the Arctic and North Atlantic Region and Impacts on the UK

We seek to understand how climate change in the Arctic and North Atlantic region will impact the United Kingdom, with a focus on extreme weather and the potential for rapid, disruptive change.

Our work

We will take an all-in-one view of the Arctic and North Atlantic climate system, including the ocean, atmosphere and sea ice, to understand how changes in this region will affect the UK.

What will CANARI do?

We will enable the UK to play an internationally leading role in understanding regional climate change, and providing information about the consequences of climate change for UK people, places, and economy.
