Fully funded PhD Studentship: The challenge of modelling and forecasting fog

The overarching goal of this project is to improve the prediction of
fog. The Met Office is currently conducting an 18 month large scale
field campaign in Shropshire, the Local And Non local Fog Experiment
(LANFEX).  This studentship will make use of this unique, long-term
data set and use numerical models to improve the quantitative
prediction of fog events.  The student will have the possibility to
participate in field trials and collect intensive observations in
Shropshire. The LANFEX data set will be used to compare with model
runs and provide a detailed assessment of model performance which will
facilitate improvements to the prediction of fog. In particular, it is
intended to examine model physics and parameterisations related to
initial fog formation and its deepening into thick fog, but all
aspects of fog evolution, including its breakup will be examined.

This project will be a close collaboration between UEA and the CASE
partner Met Office in collaboration with the project partner
University of Bonn.

4 years of funding (stipend and fees) for UK applicants;
Application deadline 31 Mar 2015, Start: 01 Oct 2015.  Further
