Dr George Ford
George focuses on the provision of meteorological and oceanographic advice to the UK armed forces.
George’s varied work includes development of new tools and data products to aid decision making in support of military operations, including prediction of radar and sonar performance based on the local environmental conditions. He also carries out research on novel techniques to exploit or mitigate the effects of the atmosphere in order to provide a tactical advantage.
George joined the Met Office in May 2015 following completion of a postdoctoral research project at the British Antarctic Survey, on remote sensing of winds in the polar mesosphere. He previously worked at the Defence Science and Technology Laboratory (Dstl) as an acoustic scientist, working on defence and security applications related to sound, both above and below water.
He completed his PhD in Astrophysics at Cardiff University in 2014 and holds an MSci in Physics from the University of Bristol.
