Peter coordinates part of the Met Office work on future thresholds and non-linearity in the climate system. Current personal work includes:

  • Improved quantification and understanding of non-linear regional climate change.
  • Potential impacts on the Amazon of a shutdown in the AMOC
  • Potential for irreversible change in the Amazon forest - and any associated early warning.
