Observation Based Research
Observation Based Research scientists
Steven works on observational and numerical modelling studies of clouds, using measurements from the FAAM BAe146 research aircraft.
Dr Anthony J. Baran
Anthony studies how electromagnetic radiation interacts with particulates suspended in the Earth's atmosphere with an emphasis on ice crystal clouds or cirrus.
Paul uses cloud observations from the FAAM BAe146 research aircraft to study microphysical processes and their representation in the Unified Model.
Philip R.A. Brown
Phil manages the Cloud Physics research group, using the FAAM BAe146 aircraft to study cloud microphysical and dynamical processes.
Bernard improves the Met Office's NWP capability through the gathering and analysis of boundary-layer meteorological observations.
Richard studies cloud microphysics focusing on ice nucleation and ice-phase evolution, using data obtained from the FAAM BAe146 research aircraft.
R. Chawn Harlow
Chawn manages the Atmospheric Radiation Research Group which uses data from the FAAM BAe146 aircraft for various radiative transfer and remote sensing applications.
Stephan works on the development of new methods for fast radiative transfer and is also involved in the development of fast variational retrieval codes.
Amanda uses surface and balloon-borne instruments to observe and study cloud and radiation processes, so as to improve their representation in atmospheric models.
Dave supports airborne atmospheric research by providing guidance to optimise the use of the FAAM BAe146 research aircraft.
As a design and engineering scientist, Rob designs and maintains aircraft instruments, specialising in microwave radiometers.
Justin uses measurements of aerosol optical, chemical and microphysical properties to improve the representation of aerosol processes in atmospheric models.
Franco supports the aerosol lidar mounted on the FAAM BAe146 research aircraft, with expertise in the processing and interpretion of data.
Simon uses ground-based instruments to observe and better understand aerosol, cloud and radiation processes, so as to improve NWP forecast models.
Debbie uses data from the FAAM BAe146 research aircraft to study aerosol interactions with radiation and chemistry and to characterise instrument performance.
Jeremy manages the Met Office boundary layer observational research programme in support of developing better Met Office weather services.
Jean-Claude studies the retrieval of surface properties from hyperspectral air- and space-borne radiance measurements.
Dave supports airborne atmospheric research by providing programming skills and IT knowledge to optimise the use of the FAAM BAe146 aircraft and its data.
Kate uses observations from the FAAM BAe146 research aircraft to study aerosols and their interaction with radiation, clouds and chemistry.
Andy works on the design, manufacture, maintenance and operation of the Met Office instrumentation aboard the FAAM BAe146 research aircraft.
