New publication to celebrate NERC’s Anniversary.

To mark its 50th anniversary, NERC has produced Great science for a great future, a publication outlining just a few of the impacts of the research we support. These include:

  • defending people and property from floods
  • supporting international agreements to protect the ozone layer from human emissions
  • protecting the UK’s peregrine falcons from poisonous pesticides
  • underpinning efforts to reduce air pollution and deal with problems like acid rain and nitrogen deposition
  • developing innovative new products that control harmful crop pests without harming the wider environment.
