The University of Exeter has an exciting PhD project which explores the interface between the natural and social sciences, using the human response to hazards and impacts through social media, to map their occurrence for more scientific purposes. The Met Office is in the business of issuing warnings of hazards and related impacts using a likelihood-severity classification (http://www.metoffice.gov.uk/guide/weather/warnings). The Met Office is also part of the Natural Hazards Partnership (http://www.naturalhazardspartnership.org.uk/). Whilst this is not a Met Office CASE studentship close collaboration between the Met Office and the University of Exeter is anticipated.
