Research projects

The JWCRP supports a range of research projects and underpinning research activites. Central to all these projects is the requirement for close collaboration between the Met Office and NERC academic community:

  • The UK Earth System Model (UKESM) project will develop and evaluate the next generation of UK Earth System model.

  • The Globally Uniform Next Generation Highly Optimised (GungHo) project aims to research, design and develop a new dynamical core suitable for operational, global and regional, weather and climate simulation on massively parallel computers of the size envisaged over the coming 20 years.

  • The UK Environmental Prediction (UKEP) project is developing a tool which integrates existing national-scale high resolution environmental prediction capabilities to provide useful predictions of weather impacts.

  • The High Resolution Implementation Group oversees the collaborative development of high resolution climate models required to provide society with accurate and reliable predictions of regional climate change.
