The  research grants continue to flow into the Climatic Research Unit, at the University of East Anglia. According to FOI information I have received, they received a total of £361541 in the financial year 2011/12.


In the previous year, cost of salaries/employment costs were £530700, so research grants pay for 68% of this bill.



Staff Category Total Cost of Salaries and Employment Costs
Academic,teaching and research 231945
Research and analogous 298755


Staff Category Salary Grade Head Count
Academic, Teaching and Research Reader 1
  Professor 2
Research and Analogous 9 1
  7 5
  6 1
TOTAL   10


Staff Category Grade Salary Range
Academic, Teaching and Research Reader £45336 to £57431
  Professor £54133 to £125000
Research and Analogous 9 £45336 to £57431
  7 £29972 to £37990
  6 £23661 to £31798


Take away the hyped up alarm about climate change (and the politics that surround it), and much of the research money will go with it. Take the money away, and most of the jobs go as well.

    AFAIR Phil Jones had a grant to study the ‘divergence problem’ which was to complete in 2012. Have you seen anything of a resulting paper?

    I found it – in your previous post!

    ~£250,000 entitled ‘The Dendroclimatic Divergence Phenomenon: reassessment of causes and implications for climate reconstruction’

    That will be an interesting read.
