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.
