Speaker: Professor Paul Hardaker 

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 how accurate our weather forecasts really are and the challenges of communicating the science and the forecasts to both the public and policy makers.

Organised by: IOP Yorkshire Branch and Sheffield University
