Publications by Jeremy
Jeremy works as a Scientific Manager in Observation Based Research, located at their out-station in Cardington, Bedfordshire. Currently his responsibilities are:
- Maintaining and developing the field site at Cardington;
- Running the observational boundary layer research programme;
- Managing instrument development projects;
- Fostering collaboration with other research institutes.
Specific research areas:
- Managing the observational component of COLPEX, a field experiment to examine cold pooling of air and fog formation in a region of hilly terrain;
- Fog formation, evolution and dissipation, with an interest in correctly predicting stability and turbulence in radiation fog;
- Boundary layer clouds. In particular, stratus, stratocumulus, and cumulus spreading into stratocumulus. Studying cloud evolution and the relation between humidity distributions and cloud fraction;
- Stable boundary layers;
- Instrument development, including turbulence probes, and a cloud droplet probe for use on a tethered balloon system;
- Development of a large autonomous portable meteorological observing station based around a 30m tower using a full suite of research quality measurements capable of continuous operation using its own power source.
- PhD in Atmospheric physics studying stratosphere-troposphere exchange in cut-off-low systems;
- Joined Met Office in 1995, as a Senior Scientific Officer based at Cardington to stratocumulus cloud;
- Moved to Parametrizations in 2003 working on a new cloud parametrization scheme (PC2);
- Returned to Cardington Met Research Unit in 2005 to become the new Principal Meteorological Officer.
