Met Office OBR (Observation Based Research) Scientist £21,250 up to £29,100 pa for exceptional candidates + benefits Exeter, Devon The role The quality of Met Office products depends on the quality of the forecast models that allow us to predict the weather and climate. The models need to accurately represent key processes in the atmosphere like the transfer of energy, the formation of clouds or the effects of aerosol on air quality. The models also need observations from a range of sources including satellites. In this unique role, you will work with a team of experts using the Facility for Airborne Atmospheric Measurements (www.faam.ac.uk) aircraft to gather observations of the atmosphere. Using state of the art instruments like thermal infrared interferometers, visible and microwave radiometers you will gather these observations and conduct research in to how the atmosphere works and use these observations to assess the performance of the forecast models. Some of your research may involve working with prototype satellite instruments, flying them on the research aircraft and conducting research in to how to use these observations effectively in forecast models. Your expertise in instrumentation and research will allow you to work with a team dedicated to improving the understanding of the atmosphere and improving the representation of the atmosphere in forecast models. You will fly on the research aircraft both in the UK and overseas operating instruments or conducting your own research. Please see the attachment for details.
