Earth System and Mitigation scientists
Our scientists working in Earth System and Mitigation
- Chris Jones
Chris leads research into vegetation and carbon cycle modelling and their interactions with climate.
- Prof Colin Jones
Colin heads the joint Met Office/NERC UK Earth System Model (UKESM) project
- Dr Pete Falloon
Pete manages a team of scientists who work with and develop integrated models for assessing climate change impacts. The team focuses particularly on climate change, agriculture, and water resources.
- Dr Dan Bernie
Climate change mitigation advice, scenario feasibility, carbon budgets, uncertainty and risk.
- Eleanor Burke
Eleanor is a permafrost research scientist. Her interests include land surface processes in the northern high latitude and development and application of tools to explore the permafrost climate feedback.
- Dr John Caesar
John works on investigating changing climate extremes using models and observations
- Mohit Dalvi
Mohit is the code manager for the UK Chemistry and Aerosols component of the Unified Model.
- Dr Gerd Folberth
Gerd works on air quality climate interactions in the HadGEM2 Earth System Model including ecosystem atmosphere chemical exchange processes.
- Peter Good
- Dr Steven Hardiman
Steven works on Stratospheric Processes.
- Prof Jim Haywood
Jim is engaged in measurement and modelling aerosols and their impacts on radiation, clouds, visibility and air-quality.
- Alan Hewitt
Alan joined the ESMS team as a Scientific Software Engineer
- Richard Hill
Richard works on technical aspects of coupled and ocean models, with a particular interest in code performance on supercomputers
- Dr Ben Johnson
Ben studies the impact of aerosols on atmospheric radiation and climate using observations and climate models.
- Spencer Liddicoat
Spencer works on the terrestrial carbon cycle with a particular interest in the mitigation of climate change.
- Dr Alistair Manning
Alistair models the atmospheric dispersion of material using the Met Office's Lagrangian dispersion model NAME (Numerical Atmospheric-dispersion Modelling Environment).
- Dr Jane Mulcahy
Jane develops and evaluates the aerosol component UKCA-mode and its interactions within the fully coupled UK Earth System Model (UKESM).
- Dr Fiona O'Connor
Fiona is a climate scientist working on atmospheric chemistry, with a particular interest in methane, chemistry-climate interactions, and climate system feedbacks.
Alison models the atmospheric dispersion of material using the Met Office's Lagrangian dispersion model, NAME (Numerical Atmospheric-dispersion Modelling Environment) and estimates emissions to the atmosphere through inversion modelling.
- Dr Steve Rumbold
Steve simulates global sources, sinks and transport of anthropogenic aerosol and investigates the associated impact on air quality and climate.
- Dr Alistair Sellar
Alistair leads the scientific development and evaluation of the UK Earth System Model
Steven studies the interaction of air pollutants with climate, using coupled composition-climate model simulations and observations of atmospheric chemistry and aerosols
- Dr Yongming Tang
Yongming works on the UK Earth System Model as configuration manager for the high resolution model UKESM-HI
- Dr Jeremy Walton
Jeremy leads the software engineering team for the UK Earth System Model.
- Dr Stephanie Woodward
Stephanie's research work involves the development of the mineral dust scheme within the Met Office Unified Model, particularly within the framework of the UK Earth System Model, and the use of the scheme to study dust and its interactions with the atmosphere and the wider earth system.
