IAGP Project Partner Institutions
Our researchers have been based at the several institutions across the
University of Leeds
The School of Earth and Environment at the University of Leeds has about 50 staff, researchers and students working on aspects of global atmospheric and climate modelling, including cloud and aerosol interaction and stratospheric chemistry. The school has world leading expertise in quantifying potential climate change mechanisms through radiative forcing and using climate models to understand how climate responses differ across a range of forcing mechanisms.
IAGP team members based at the School of Earth and Environment are:
- Professor Piers Forster - Professor of Physical Climate Change and IAGP Principal Investigator
- Dr Lawrence Jackson - Research Fellow
- Dr Julia Crook - Research Fellow
- Ms Annabel Jenkins - IAGP Postgraduate Researcher
- Dr Cat Scott - Affiliated Postgraduate Researcher
- Miss Jayne Windeatt - Affiliated Postgraduate Researcher
- Ms Ros McDonnell - IAGP Project Administrator
University of Bristol
The University of Bristol has an active geoengineering group in the School of Geographical Sciences, which has contributed expert witness to the UK Government Innovation, Universities, Science and Skills Select Committee. Expertise includes extensive experience in assessing the marine biological impacts of ocean acidification, the potential for carbon-orientated geoengineering proposals such as iron fertilization, and geoengineering mitigation effectiveness and impacts on climate.
The Bristol Research Initiative for the Dynamic Global Environment (BRIDGE) aims is to improve the understanding of natural climate and environmental variability and to use this knowledge to predict future changes more accurately and assess its impact on all aspects of human society.
IAGP team member based at Bristol are:
- Professor Andy Ridgwell - IAGP Co-Investigator
- Dr Michelle Felton - Research Associate
- Miss Sarah Jones -IAGP Postgraduate Researcher
The School of Psychology at Cardiff University is one of the largest in the UK with the very highest ratings in the 2001 and 2008 Research Assessment Exercise.The Understanding Risk Research Group within the School is an internationally-recognised centre of excellence for work on public attitudes and acceptability of new technologies and environmental risks, and on public engagement with science.
IAGP team members based at the School of Psychology at Cardiff University are:
- Professor Nick Pidgeon - Professor of Environmental Psychology and Director of the Understanding Risk Research Group
- Dr Adam Corner - Research Associate
- Dr Karen Parkhill - Research Fellow
University of East Anglia
The School of Environmental Sciences at University of East Anglia is one of the longest established and largest Schools of Environmental Sciences in Europe. The Research Assessment Exercise in 2001 gave the School the highest possible research ranking, a position that was maintained and strengthened in the 2008 Assessment. The School integrates physical, chemical, biological, social and geotechnical sciences into the study of natural and human environments.
IAGP team members based at the School of Environmental Sciences at the University of East Anglia are:
The Lancaster Environment Centre at Lancaster University has a group of approximately 12 staff, postdoctoral research associates and postgraduate students working in Systems and Control. This includes world leading expertise of ‘climate change as control’, i.e. the application of systems and control science to climate systems analysis.
The IAGP team at the Lancaster Environment Centre includes:
The Department of Sociology at Lancaster University is renowned for its innovative and ground breaking research, which was confirmed by being rated in the top 5 departments in the 2008 Research Assessment Exercise.
University of Oxford
The Department of Engineering Science at the University of Oxford has an international reputation for research across the main branches of engineering, and is involved in a great deal of multi-disciplinary research. Within the area of Chemical and Process Engineering, expertise includes energy and environmental engineering.
IAGP team members based at the Department of Engineering Science at the University of Oxford are:
Tyndall Centre for Climate Change Research
The Tyndall Centre brings together scientists, economists, engineers and social scientists who are working to develop sustainable responses to climate change. The Tyndall Centre has world leading expertise in interdisciplinary policy relevant science, with internationally renowned stakeholder engagement expertise.
The objective of the Tyndall Centre is to research, assess and communicate from a distinct trans-disciplinary perspective, the options to mitigate, and the necessities to adapt to, climate change, and to integrate these into the global, UK and local contexts of sustainable development.
The Met Office
The Met Office Hadley Centre is a world-leading centre which provides a focus in the UK for the scientific issues associated with climate change. The Met Office has considerable experience in the field of climate and Earth System modelling as well as in decadal to centennial simulations.
IAGP team member based at the Met Office is Professor Jim Haywood.
