Cascade Downstream Workshop on Convection Modelling

The Cascade Downstream Workshop on Convection Modelling took place from 7-8 October 2014 at the University of Reading.

Understanding and representing atmospheric convection across scales

This meeting was held at Dartington Hall, Devon, UK on 28-30 January 2013.

UK research team wins major European computing resources for global climate modelling

A joint NERC/ Met Office weather and climate research project will benefit from the largest amount of super- computing time ever awarded to a single team.

Weather Experts Enjoy Climate of Co-operation

Stronger collaboration between Living with Environmental Change partners aims for climate forecasting at county level.

Joint supercomputing facility - one year on

The MONSooN service is a key piece of infrastructure for the JWCRP and has been in operation since December 2009. A four-page brochure has been published which describes the service currently available to users and summarises both service enhancements implemented in 2010 and those now being implemented. Enhancements in progress include further simplifying user access to the MONSooN environment and enhancing access to the MASS data archive.
