Karen Shorey

Senior Trainer, Met Office College

I joined the Met Office in 2002, having spent two years working as an Observer in Antarctica. Once qualified as a Forecaster, I dealt with enquiries ranging from maintaining the road network in winter to whether the conditions were suitable for hot air balloonists. I moved to our headquarters in Exeter in 2006 to work as an Aviation Forecaster, issuing forecasts and warnings to airports across the UK. In 2008 I transferred to the Met Office College where I became the Aviation Training Manager, specialising in aircraft icing and turbulence, severe convection and the effects of volcanic ash. In 2010 I joined the Expert Team on Education and Training as a non-core member of the Commission of Aeronautical Meteorology run by the World Meteorological Organization. I've since been running workshops introducing the new aviation forecaster competency standards.
