Tim Arnold

Tim's research encompasses estimating fluxes of greenhouse and stratospheric ozone depleting gases using the Met Office's Lagrangian dispersion model NAME (Numerical Atmospheric-dispersion Modelling Environment)

Areas of expertise

Tim's areas of expertise include:

  • Measurement of greenhouse gases from ambient air
  • Estimating long-term trends, growth rates and seasonal cycles of greenhouse and stratospheric ozone-depleting gases
  • Estimating emissions to the atmosphere through inversion modelling

Current activities

Using high quality observations from around the UK, Europe and the globe to:

  • Estimate the long-term trends of  greenhouse and stratospheric ozone-depleting gases.
  • Estimate emissions at high spatial resolution from high frequency data sets of observations from UK, European and beyond.
