  SCENARIO - Turbulence and Clouds
  Research Group: SCENARIO NERC DTP
  Dr H Weller, Prof P Clark
Application Deadline: 24 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The representations of clouds and associated buoyant atmospheric convection are arguably the weakest aspects of weather and climate models, leading to poor forecasts and unreliable projections of the regional impacts of climate change.
  Improved time-stepping schemes in weather and climate models
  Prof P Williams, Dr H Weller
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

"The task of predicting weather and climate may be reduced to the following iterative procedure. First, given the state of the system at any time (the input), use the governing equations to compute the state at a slightly later time (the output).
  Evaluating and improving high-resolution high-impact weather numerical weather forecasts
  Dr RS Plant, Dr T Stein
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Over the past decade, high-resolution numerical weather forecasting has become practical using so-called “convection-permitting” models for lead times of 1-24 hours.
  SCENARIO - A multi-scale modelling approach to bring urban climate and weather into built environment
  Dr Z Luo, Prof S Grimmond
Application Deadline: 24 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

With rapid global urbanization, more than 50% population now live in cities, and it will be projected to be 70% by 2050. Our living environment is exposed to overheating risk due to the combination of climate extreme, i.e., heatwave and urban heat island.
  SCENARIO - Improving convective storm simulations through scale-adaptive and flow-adaptive sub-grid methods
  Research Group: SCENARIO NERC DTP
  Dr RS Plant, Prof P Clark
Application Deadline: 24 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The project is concerned with improving the numerical simulations required for short-range numerical weather prediction and small-scale regional climate prediction.
  SCENARIO - Using high-resolution climate models to predict increases in atmospheric turbulence
  Research Group: SCENARIO NERC DTP
  Prof P Williams, Dr R Schiemann
Application Deadline: 24 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Atmospheric turbulence is the leading cause of in-flight injuries to air travellers and flight attendants. Tens of thousands of aircraft encounter severe turbulence annually, injuring hundreds of people and causing structural damage to planes.
  SCENARIO - Developing an urban canopy model for improved weather forecasts in cities
  Research Group: SCENARIO NERC DTP
  Prof J Barlow, Dr O Coceal, Dr M Carpentieri
Application Deadline: 24 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Most of the world’s population now experiences an urban version of weather extremes and climate change. Accurate forecasting of weather and air quality in cities relies on correctly representing the physics of turbulent exchange between the surface and the overlying atmosphere.
  SCENARIO - Enhancing forecasting flood inundation mapping through data assimilation
  Research Group: SCENARIO NERC DTP
  Prof S L Dance, Dr D Mason
Application Deadline: 24 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Flooding is major risk for lives and livelihoods around the world. In Europe alone, the annual cost due to flood damage is expected to rise to 100 billion EUR by the year 2080, due to a combination of climate change and socio-economic growth.
  SCENARIO - Trapped lee waves as a source of low-level drag on the atmosphere
  Research Group: SCENARIO NERC DTP
  Dr MA Teixeira, Dr SL Gray
Application Deadline: 24 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

Atmospheric models used for numerical weather prediction and climate modelling have large uncertainties in their representation of small-scale processes that contribute to uncertainties in the large-scale movement of air termed the atmospheric circulation.
  SCENARIO - Detecting severe weather with radars for observations-based nowcasting
  Research Group: SCENARIO NERC DTP
  Dr T Stein, Dr C Westbrook
Application Deadline: 24 January 2020

Funding Type

PhD Type

The Met Office have recently upgraded their weather radars to have Doppler and dual-polarization capabilities, which has produced a wealth of new measurements for data assimilation, model evaluation, and forecasting purposes.
