About the Project

One of the key drivers of weather and climate (on any planet with an atmosphere) is the state of the jet stream. The jet stream is not a steady and continuous flow of air; it is highly variable in both space and time, with many timescales (from a few days to several months) interacting nonlinearly. This project is part of an ongoing effort in elucidating the interaction between those timescales, using idealised models as well as state-of-the-art atmospheric data. In particular we focus on conceptual and theoretical developments which, for example, will help us to pin down how regional climate change is going to be realized in a future climate, or how jets are formed and maintained on other planets.
