In order to evaluate the effectiveness of communication at our stand, ‘A Model Earth’, at the Royal Society Summer Science Exhibition (3rd to 9th July 2017) and to observe trends in opinions and knowledge of climate science amongst exhibition visitors, a survey was conducted over the course of the exhibition week. The aim was to […]
Before I started working in the UKESM project, I worked on an entirely different project: the ATLAS experiment at CERN. CERN is the European Organization for Nuclear Research: it is the largest particle physics laboratory in the world and hosts the Large Hadron Collider, as well as many significant physics experiments. Between 2006 and 2010, […]
In the first week of July 2017, The Royal Society held their annual flagship Summer Science Exhibition, in the society’s home in London. Consistently attracting tens of thousands of curious visitors each year, the exhibition remains as prestigious as it was at its creation, and an incredible opportunity for members of the scientific community to […]
The Crosscurrents event was a marine science and poetry event held at Plymouth Marine Laboratory (PML) in March 2017. At the event, five scientists were paired up with five local poets. The scientists were tasked with presenting their research and the poet shared one or more poems inspired by the science. On the night of […]
The fourth workshop on Coupling Technologies for Earth System Models was held at Princeton University on March 20-22 (see https://www.earthsystemcog.org/projects/cw2017/). Richard Hill and Jeremy Walton attended from the UKESM core group; our Met Office colleagues Jean-Christophe Rioual and Mike Hobson were also at the meeting.
The European Geosciences Union (EGU) General Assembly 2017 was held in Vienna on 23-28 April (see http://www.egu2017.eu/). Lee de Mora and I attended from the UKESM core group; several other colleagues from the Met Office and NERC were also at the meeting.
The UKESM project brings together the unique climate modelling capabilities of the Met Office Hadley Centre (MOHC) with a wealth of advanced Earth system modelling (ESM) and observational capabilities from 8 NERC centres (NCAS, BAS, BGS, CEH, CPOM, NCEO, NOC and PML). Carried out in active collaboration with the broader NERC research community, the project […]
