The award is part of a Government investment in 'Big Data', announced by the Chancellor at the last Budget. The funding will support tools for visualisation, analytical software, new computing, and large capacity data storage facilities. The new infrastructure will help  combine together the massive datasets generated by York's atmospheric chemistry modelling with state of the art analytical chemistry instruments in the lab, to create a virtual archive of atmospheric composition.
