Understanding atmospheric processes and their role in the climate system
Investigating atmospheric circulation from the surface to the upper stratosphere and its role in climate variability and change
Our research addresses physical climate processes in the context of anthropogenic perturbations to the Earth system as the underlying cause of climate change with an overall focus on the role of clouds and aerosols.
Earth Observation Data Group
The principal focus of EODG is the retrieval of atmospheric properties (e.g. temperature, pressure, trace gas concentrations, aerosol and cloud properties) from data gathered by Earth Observing satellites.
Ice and Fluid Dynamics
Environmental fluid dynamics, applied to sea ice, ice sheets and ocean interactions.
Physics of the circulation and structure of the global ocean and its impacts on climate
Predictability of weather and climate
Predictions of weather and climate are inherently uncertain: initial conditions can never be known perfectly, and our weather and climate simulators are necessarily imperfect representations of the underlying laws of physics. Given this, how can we quanti
