Welcome to CASIX
CASIX, the Centre for observation of Air-Sea Interactions & fluXes, is a NERC Centre of Excellence in Earth Observation. Our scientific focus is on advancing the science of air-sea interactions and reducing the errors in the prediction of climate change. The primary goal is to quantify accurately the global air-sea fluxes of carbon dioxide (CO2). CASIX will accelerate the exploitation of new Earth Observation satellite data to further the understanding of marine biogeochemistry in the Earth System. CASIX links NERC Centres, university groups and the Met Office to model ocean circulation and the ocean carbon cycle (click here to see a full list of partners).
