WCSSP Southeast Asia research opportunities

We now have one open research grant opportunties. You can apply on our tenders portal.

UK researchers can register their interest or submit an application on the following research topics:

OPEN CALL

Tropical error covariances for data assimilation

Call opens: 6 November
Call closes: 11 December

Submissions are sought on ‘Tropical Error Covariances for Data Assimilation’. 

This project will focus on data assimilation in the tropics with an overall aim to improve weather forecasting over Southeast Asia. This project will investigate the dynamic, flow-dependent relationships implicit within convective-scale tropical error structures and their interactions with larger scales (e.g. Tropical Cyclones, Cold surges, etc).

You can apply on our tenders portal.

CLOSED CALLS

Tropical Science and Forecasting Training

This call closed on 22 September

Submissions are sought to deliver tropical science and forecasting training and training material to advance the understanding of tropical meteorology for both research scientists and forecasters in the UK and partner institutes in Southeast Asia.

Indicative timetable for current opportunity.

The role of tropical waves on the weather of Southeast Asia

This call closed on 15 August.

UK researchers were asked to submit applications on the following research topic:

The role of tropical waves on the weather of Southeast Asia.
The research opportunity will look at the role of tropical waves on the weather of Southeast Asia, evaluating multiple large scale wave phenomena in both observations as well as global and regional scale models. This activity is intended to look at the influence that tropical waves have on weather patterns in the region, investigating if this is represented correctly in models and putting forward tested hypotheses on how to improve prediction.

Tropical Cyclone predictions in Southeast Asia using numerical weather prediction

This call closed on 18 November.

UK researchers were asked to submit applications on the following research topic:

Tropical Cyclone predictions in Southeast Asia using numerical weather prediction.
This project will look at both global and convective scale NWP, using the Unified Model (UM) over Southeast Asia to improve understanding of how such models represent Tropical Cyclones (TCs) in the Western North Pacific (WNP) and the Philippines Area of Responsibility (PAR).
