The Royal Meteorological Society, in partnership with the University of Reading, are delivering the third in the series of Meteorological Masterclasses in October 2021, which aim to discuss and explore the interactions between the ocean and the atmosphere.
Places to attend these events are FREE thanks to the generosity of our sponsor FleetWeather, and aim to support continuing professional development (CPD) for practicing operational meteorologists and climate scientists.
This series will cover broad topics relevant to marine meteorology, such as tropical cyclone development; changes in Arctic Sea ice; and recent developments in atmosphere/ocean modelling and coupling in numerical weather prediction, across three webinars each running from 1:00 AM until 2:30 AM (AEDT):
- Thursday 7 October 2021: Sea Ice in the Climate System: Dr David Schroeder, Centre for Polar Observation and Modelling, University of Reading
- Thursday 14 October 2021: Understanding the Marine Environment through Satellite Earth Observation and Numerical Modelling: Dr Samantha Lavender, Director of Pixalytics Ltd
- Thursday 21 October 2021: Tropical Cyclones in the Climate System – Physical Processes and their Representation in Climate Models: Prof Pier Luigi Vidale, Climate System Science – University of Reading, Senior Scientist – Climate Directorate of the National Centre for Atmospheric Science
The masterclass events are recommended for professionals working in the production of services for shipping and offshore activities (drilling, wind, and tidal energy); catastrophe modelling and insurance; and naval operations such as search and rescue. The Masterclass series will provide a valuable update on the science of ocean-atmosphere interaction and its role in weather system development and climate change.
For anyone unable to join us or who may want to watch back, if you register your attendance you can still access the video recordings which will be made available within a few days of the event. There will also be an option to ask the speakers questions via email for one week after the video goes live.
