More sting jet storms likely due to global warming
The UK could be hit by more than double the number of storms with exceptional wind speeds, like the one that caused mayhem across south east England in October 1987, if global warming continues, scientists have warned.
Upgrade to UK environmental science supercomputer will make it twice as capable
A major upgrade is being made to double the storage available in the UK’s leading environmental science supercomputer, JASMIN. The upgraded system will support the global analysis of the next generation of climate models and provide a venue for UK academia and industry to exploit Earth observation data.
International Women's Day 2018: Women in atmospheric science share their stories
To mark International Women’s Day, women across the National Centre for Atmospheric Science have given us an insight to their work and experiences in science, engineering, technology and maths (STEM) careers. Today (8 March 2018) we are celebrating their fantastic contributions to UK research and innovation, and hope to inspire more women to work in STEM, in particular, at the forefront of atmospheric science.
We spoke to women across the breadth of our organisation, in roles as diverse as data scientists, instrument scientists, training and communications managers, and PhD students. Their responses are inspiring and motivating for all of us, but also recognise the ongoing challenges faced by women in our field, and more generally.
