Publications by Rosemary Eade

Current activities

Rosemary's work involves investigation into the predictability of climate variables on monthly to decadal time scales, and assessment of the forecast skill of decadal prediction systems, primarily using ensemble predictions from the Met Office Decadal Prediction System, DePreSys.

The current focus is on the decadal variability of the North Atlantic Oscillation and associated global teleconnections. The aim of this work is to improve understanding of the variability, and to increase prediction capability.

Career background
