Project Description

The Department hosts a vibrant Space and Atmospheric Electricity group whose research interests span the remit of Space Weather from the Sun through the heliosphere to Earth. In the Department of Meteorology, you will have access to state-of-the-art computing facilities and a large, internationally-renowned research community of 50 academics, over 100 post-doctoral scientists and around 70 PhD students. Our large PhD student community is especially welcoming, providing support and professional opportunities to enhance your postgraduate studies.

Here at Reading we are building new models of the wave-particle interactions that shape the extent and strength of Earth’s Outer Radiation Belt. Guided by data from the NASA Van Allen probes, Magnetospheric Multiscale mission and the ESA Cluster constellation, you will have the opportunity to construct state-of-the-art models to explore why the amount and location of the high-energy electron population in near-Earth space is so variable.
