Assessing Atmospheric Transport in the Met Office Model

Maths lecturer James Kent has been successful in his CES RIS funding application. He will lead the project "Assessing Atmospheric Transport in the Met Office Model" and will work closely with the Dynamics Research team at the Met Office. 

The Met Office are currently designing their next generation atmospheric model. A key component of the model is the atmospheric transport scheme - the numerical method that transports quantities (such as gases, pollutants, temperature, etc.) with the wind. The project will produce an intercomparision of the Met Office's proposed methods, assessing accuracy and efficiency, to demonstrate which approach is optimum for their model.
