Satellite Applications Scientist
21675.00 - 35040.00 GBP per Year
£21,675 and for exceptional candidates up to £35,040 + competitive benefits and Civil Service pension.
The Satellite Applications Section of the Met Office undertakes R&D to improve the impact of satellite data within numerical weather prediction (NWP) systems and hence to improve the accuracy of weather forecasts. It also performs R&D to generate and improve satellite products in support of other forecasting applications, climate monitoring and environmental services. The direct assimilation of satellite data into NWP models is an important part of the Section's work. Current activities use visible, infra-red and microwave data from geostationary and polar-orbiting satellites, and they include preparation for new satellites and instruments planned for the coming decade. Work also extends to studies in support of the definition of instruments on satellites to be flown in future decades. External liaison is an important part of the work and the Section is actively involved in European collaborations.
To work as a member of a research and development team to improve the application of satellite data in numerical weather prediction and other weather and climate applications.
