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.
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.
Ocean modelling scientist, developing and validating NEMO-FOAM (Forecasting Ocean Assimilation Model) models.
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.
Jian-Guo Li works on ocean surface wave spectral models and is especially interested in transport schemes on unstructured multi-resolution grids.
Niall develops tools and methods for assessing the performance of ocean forecasts and assists users looking to exploit ocean forecasts.
Alison leads the transitions of improvements into the operational ocean forecasting systems together with the maintenance and support of these systems.
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.
Huw manages the work to promote, plan, accelerate and pull through to operation of environmental prediction capabilities.
Matt leads the research and development of marine data assimilation systems in the Met Office.
Jonah works on monitoring and developing the OSTIA analysis and the GMPE system.
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.
Isabelle works on data assimilation for ocean models and coupled atmosphere-ocean models.
David works on coupling models of the atmosphere and the ocean.
Chris leads research into using integrated coupled model systems to improve real-time forecasts globally and for the UK.
