Meteorology is still a relatively young science with lots of interesting challenges remaining for physics, and so physicists continue to play an important role in improving predictions of our weather. The talk will outline the some of these science challenges, in particular the development of computer-based prediction methods, the contributions made by improvements in both modelling and observations and how we handle uncertainty in predictions. The talk will also touch on the challenges of communicating the science to both the public and policy makers.
Talks start at 18.30 with sandwiches, refreshments and mince pies available from 18.00. All are welcome and all our talks are free to attend.
