Research Interests

Predicting weather and climate reliably on a range of time scales from days to weeks, months, seasons and years ahead using complex circulation models of the climate system is a big challenge for research. The Predictability of Weather and Climate group actively works on a range of questions that are crucial for the prediction problem including assessing and reducing uncertainties related to model predictions. We work closely with the European Centre for Medium-Range Weather Forecasts (ECMWF) based in Reading as the leading European producer of global numerical weather and climate forecasts. The details of any DPhil project would be defined in discussion with the student and other members of the group and could include experimentation with the ECMWF forecast model.
