NERC Centre for Polar Observation and Modelling
The NERC Centre for Polar Observation and Modelling (CPOM) was established in 2001 as one of the first NERC-funded centres of excellence in the application of remote sensing methods to environmental problems. Funding for a five-year period gave a total buget of more than 2 million pounds.
The Scott Polar Research Institute in Cambridge University, together with the Department of Space and Climate Physics at University College London, and the Bristol Glaciology Centre in Bristol University, have worked in collaboration on a series of projects on the links between glaciers, ice sheets, sea ice and environmental change.
Full details of CPOM activities can be found at www.cpom.org .
