About the Project
In our group at the Department of Meteorology at Reading we are conducting research into the fundamental processes by which ice particles evolve in the atmosphere, using
- state-of-the-art remote sensing observations at the Chilbolton Observatory (www.chilbolton.stfc.ac.uk), with particular focus on multi-wavelength and multi-polarisation techniques
- controlled laboratory experiments to understand the airflow around falling snowflakes and how that influences their evolution (see for example http://www.theguardian.com/news/2019/feb/15/weatherwatch-how-when-and-why-does-a-snowflake-fall)
- idealised theoretical and numerical models of microphysical processes
This PhD is an opportunity to contribute to these areas of novel research, with the precise focus of the PhD dependent on the applicant and their interests/aptitude.
To discuss this PhD opportunity informally please contact Dr Chris Westbrook (email@example.com)
