The JWCRP supports a range of research projects and underpinning research activites. Central to all these projects is the requirement for close collaboration between the Met Office and NERC academic community:
The UK Chemistry and Aerosol (UKCA) project aims to develop, evaluate and make available a new UK community atmospheric chemistry-aerosol global model suitable for a range of topics in climate and environmental change research.
The Joint Marine Modelling Programme (JMMP) coordinates work at the Met Office and NERC on the development and evaluation of configurations of the global ocean, sea ice and north-west shelf using the NEMO model.
The Joint UK Land Environment Simulator (JULES) project oversees the development and evaluation of the JULES land surface model.
The Joint Sea Ice Modelling Programme (JSIMP) aims to provide UK users with the best possible configurations and physics of a common sea ice model.
The High Resolution Implementation Group (HiRIG) study the role of model resolution on global climate process representation, in order to better understand present-day climate variability and implications for the future climate projections.
