Understanding impacts of climate change on the tropical rain belt and its variability over Africa

This project addresses a fundamental challenge in climate science. it aims to understand the processes controlling climate change in the tropical rain band over Africa (often referred to as the “inter-tropical convergence zone”), how this is represented in models and the implications for climate projections.

Understanding the role of the ocean in climate variability

A fully-funded PhD studentship is available on the role of the ocean in the climate system. The extent to which the ocean contributes to climate variability on year-to-year and decade-to-decade timescales remains largely unclear. Read more

Climate, water and society in arid regions: from ancient civilizations to the Anthropocene

The largest region of arid climate stretches from North Africa, across the Middle East and into Central Asia. In these regions, water availability is an important restriction and yet this is where the first cities, first kingdoms and first empires rose and fell. Read more

Reducing the persistent uncertainty in how aerosols affect climate change

Aerosols from air pollution are the cause of the largest uncertainty in historical climate change. Changes in historical temperature are caused by a combination of greenhouse gas warming and aerosol-induced cooling. 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: 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

Understanding changes in temperature persistence under global warming

A fully-funded PhD studentship is available in the physics of climate change. The project will focus on changes in surface temperature “persistence” - or “memory” under climate change. Read more

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
