Events, announcements and funding opportunities
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.
Closing date: 3 November 2010
Applications are invited from individual investigators to contribute to Phase 1 of the development of a new dynamical core, suitable for simulation of the atmosphere on massively parallel computers.
Announcement of Awards
Two grants were awarded under JWCRP's recent Announcement of Opportunity (May 2010):
- High resolution modelling of stable boundary layers over complex terrain (PI: Dr A Ross, University of Leeds)
- Dynamic Vegetation Modelling for Climate Prediction (PI: Prof P Friedlingstein, University of Exeter)
Please see NERC Grants on the Web for further details of the awards.
Closing date: 16:00 on 20 May 2010
Applications are invited to attend a one-day workshop looking at the development of a dynamical core that will become part of the Met Office's Unified Model.
Closing date: 11 May 2010
Proposals are invited for two projects, to contribute to the development of strategic science areas covered by JWCRP.
