John is Head of the Ocean Forecasting Research and Development (OFRD) group and co-chair of the National Centre for Ocean Forecasting (NCOF).
Responsible for maintaining and developing relocatable ocean models.
François-Xavier investigates the impact of ocean surface waves on the coupled ocean-atmosphere system. He is also involved in space weather research, studying the propagation of coronal mass ejections through the heliosphere.
Chris develops WAVEWATCH and nearshore wave model configurations in support of Met Office operational marine forecast services.
Juan Manuel is responsible for delivering and supporting high resolution, regional coupled systems
Joachim Fallmann is responsible for verification and evaluation activities for the high resolution UK Environmental Prediction regional coupled modelling system.
Emma works on the OSTIA (Operational Sea Surface Temperature and Ice Analysis) and GMPE (GHRSST Multi-Product Ensemble) systems.
Shelf sea model developer, adapting and testing the NEMO (Nucleus for European Modelling of the Ocean) shelf model for use as a coastal model.
Simon manages a team that develops the Operational Sea Surface Temperature and Sea Ice Analysis (OSTIA) products and works to optimise the use of observations for ocean forecasting.
Ocean modelling scientist, developing and validating high-resolution coupled models.
Chris leads research into using integrated coupled model systems to improve real-time forecasts globally and for the UK.
Robert works on data assimilation in marine systems.
Developing and maintaining the assimilation part of the FOAM (Forecasting Ocean Assimilation Model) operational deep ocean forecasting system.
Adam is a specialist in providing oceanographic consultancy to the offshore and coastal engineering communities.
Huw manages the work to promote, plan, accelerate and pull through to operation of environmental prediction capabilities.
Jian-Guo Li works on ocean surface wave spectral models and is especially interested in transport schemes on unstructured multi-resolution grids.
Matt leads the research and development of marine data assimilation systems in the Met Office.
Niall develops tools and methods for assessing the performance of ocean forecasts and assists users looking to exploit ocean forecasts.
Ray leads in the assessment of the impact of ocean models on acoustic modelling systems and provides support, address requests (mainly TDAs, Tactical Decision Aids suite) and answer scientific requests from Defence customers.
David works on coupling models of the atmosphere and the ocean.
Andrew works on the assessment of ocean forecast accuracy and the transition of model improvements into the operational ocean forecast systems.
Andy manages wave modelling and oceanographic consultancy teams that deliver short range forecast and planning services for the marine sector.
Peter leads the shelf seas sediment modelling capability and works on the assessment and transition of operational ocean forecast systems.
Jennie works on data assimilation into ocean models.
James works on data assimilation in marine systems; of particular interest is data assimilation in shelf sea models and assimilation of diurnal sea surface temperature.
Kirsten coordinates the GODAE OceanView Program Office and leads the MyOcean Service Desk support group.
