The United Kingdom Chemistry and Aerosols project is a collaboration between the universities of Cambridge, Leeds, Oxford, and the Met Office. Its objective is 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.
More information on UKCA can be found on the UKCA wiki. This site covers documentation and publications using UKCA, as well as providing information on UKCA standard jobs that are available through the PUMA UMUI for use on both HECToR and MONSooN. A series of UKCA tutorials are also available which cover the addition of tracers, emissions, chemical reactions, dry and wet deposition, and diagnostics into UKCA.
The key UKCA partners also organise an Annual UK Composition-Climate Interactions Meeting, which has been hosted in Leeds, Oxford, and Cambridge, and will be held at the UK Met Office in 2014.
