Dr. Vellinga presented a seminar titled “The impact for tropical storm forecasts of upgrades to UK Met Office prediction systems”. Abstract The past two years have seen various upgrades to the UK Met Office's operational prediction systems, including a near-doubling of horizontal resolution in the global deterministic forecast model to 10 x 12km. I will … Continue reading HRD Seminar – Dr. Michael Vellinga, Met Office, United Kingdom – 12 March 2018
African easterly waves (AEWs) are areas of low air pressure that move westward across North Africa and into the Atlantic Ocean. AEWs can cause intense thunderstorms, and, once over the warm waters of the Atlantic Ocean, they may become tropical cyclones that might affect the Caribbean and North America. In summer, many AEWs form in, … Continue reading Paper on changes to the intensity of tropical waves during the hurricane season published in the Journal of Climate
