UK Environmental Prediction (UKEP)

Aim: To accelerate the pull through and integration of national-scale high resolution environmental prediction capabilities to useful science and service.

Why we are doing this? To improve the accuracy of the prediction and warning of natural hazards.

Partners: CEH, Met Office, NOC, PML

Funding for this project comes from national capability funding and other sources.

Project Lead: Huw Lewis, Met Office

Project partners make use of the JWCRP MonSoon computing facility to carry out research and development. Work on the UKEP project focusses on the coupling between the component models of the atmosphere (the Met Office Unified Model), the shelf sea ocean (NEMO), the land surface (JULES) and ocean waves (WAVEWATCHIII®).
