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.
