SCENARIO: Trapped lee waves as a source of low-level drag on the atmosphere (SC2022_07)

Atmospheric models used for numerical weather prediction and climate projections have significant uncertainties in their representation of small-scale processes that contribute to errors in the modelled atmospheric circulation. Read more

Radar characterisation of volcanic plumes

Explosive eruptions can generate volcanic ash plumes that present a global hazard, and have led to welldocumented multi-billion dollar disruptions to international air transport. Read more

Earthquakes, Transforms, Mid Ocean Ridge-Understanding the Plate Tectonics beneath the oceans at the Equatorial Mid Atlantic Ridge

Project Rationale. The oceans make up 70 % of the planet, and yet they are the final frontier in understanding the inner workings of the solid earth with broad implications for climate, hazard and Earth’s evolution and habitability. Read more

SCENARIO: Discovering the Mechanisms Behind “Forecast Busts” (SC2022_20)

Numerical weather prediction (NWP) has become the essential forecasting tool that works well in the vast majority of cases. However, occasionally there are “forecast busts", in which the forecast skill at five- to six-day lead time drops to almost zero across the world's leading NWP centres. Read more

Concerning the properties and stability of resonant interfacial waves arising at the interface of two immiscible fluids under the actions of surface tension and gravity.

The evolution and stability of interfaces which arise between two fluids of finite vertical extent, caused by the interaction of two different harmonics of the fundamental, are very important for a number of applications, for example, stabilizing stratified oil and water in pipe flow, the creation of rogue waves and the understanding of the role of dissipation.
