Undertaking research and development into observations processing, data assimilation and ensemble forecasting , with a particular focus on forecasts of severe weather over the UK.
Data assimilation research is focussed on making the best use of observations using advanced variational and ensemble data assimilation techniques.
Ensemble forecasting research provides a range of products aimed at increasing the value of weather forecasts to the general public and commercial customers.
Development of a nowcasting system using km-scale NWP combined with variational data assimilation to exploit radar radial Doppler winds, reflectivity and refractivity as well as satellite imagery data.
Information on the wide range of work our data assimilation and ensembles scientists undertake; the projects they are involved with and their skills and interests.
