SCENARIO: Using data science with multi-fluid modelling of atmospheric convection (SC2022_12)

The fusion of high-resolution modelling and data science is the future of weather and climate research. This is reflected in the new generation of supercomputers which combine general-purpose computing with artificial intelligence. Read more

SCENARIO: Title Precipitation-based parametric insurance for West Africa (ref. SC2022_25)

  Research Group: SCENARIO NERC DTP
West Africa is a ‘hotspot’ for the impacts of climate change. Both drought and heavy rainfall threaten livelihoods and lives, and these hazards are projected to worsen over the next century. Read more

SCENARIO: The role of anthropogenic aerosol in near-future sub-Saharan precipitation change (SC2022_10)

Sub-Saharan Africa is densely populated and highly sensitive to climate change. West Africa has experienced both prolonged periods of drought and increased flooding over the last 50 years, and there is substantial concern that intensifying climate risk will exacerbate existing vulnerabilities.

SCENARIO: Randomized parallel algorithms for data assimilation in numerical weather prediction (ref.SC2022_23)

Data assimilation is a mathematical technique used to update a computer model forecast using the latest observational data. It is a fundamental part of modern-day weather forecasting, allowing measurements from satellites and ground-based instruments to keep the forecasting models close to reality. Read more

SCENARIO: Opening the stratospheric windows of opportunity for sub-seasonal forecasts (SC2022_06)

Traditionally, the quality of weather forecasts is assessed on the basis of their average skill over all issued forecasts. As forecasters seek to make forecasts at increasingly longer ranges, into the so-called sub-seasonal timescale, it is increasingly clear that a different approach is needed. Read more

SCENARIO: How does boundary layer variability affect cumulus and convective storm development? (SC2022_17)

Accurate forecasting of convective storms in the UK remains a challenge. Modelling studies have demonstrated that surface inhomogeneities introduce boundary-layer variability in terms of humidity and vertical motion, which affects the evolution of subsequent clouds and convective storms. Read more

SCENARIO: Evaluating the ability of human communities and environmental systems to adapt and recover to Late Holocene climate change in the Peruvian Andes (ref. SC2022_14)

During the Late Holocene (last 4250 years), past climatic reconstructions from Peruvian archives (ice, marine, speleothems and lakes) have provided high-resolution records of precipitation and temperature changes, which reflect the varying influences of the Intertropical Convergence Zone, South American Summer Monsoon and El Nino Southern Oscillation (ENSO).

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

SCENARIO: Decadal climate forecasting for the energy-sector (SC2022_02)

Throughout the world, power systems are undergoing massive change in response to the challenge of climate change. Renewable electricity sources – such as wind and solar PV – are playing an increasing role in power systems, fundamentally altering the way power systems operate. Read more
