Dr Emma Turner
Emma works on the parametrization of radiative transfer in the atmosphere.
Emma is a scientist working in the Clouds and Radiation Group, a subset of the Atmospheric Processes and Parametrizations team. She works on radiation parametrization for the Unified Model and is involved in the development of the offline radiation code (SOCRATES). Currently, Emma is developing improvements for the UV index forecast.
Emma joined the Met Office in October 2015. Emma's PhD was undertaken at the University of Edinburgh with Simon Tett, and focused on evaluating spectral radiances simulated by the HadGEM2 global climate model using longwave satellite measurements. Following that, she worked as a post-doc on the SPECTRO-ICE project, a collaboration between the University of Cambridge and the British Antarctic Survey, that looked at the potential of applying detector technology developed for astronomy to atmospheric science at sub-millimetre/far infrared wavelengths.
