The UK National Centre for Earth Observation is pleased to announce an exciting PhD studentship related to satellite observations of carbon dioxide and their application to weather forecasting.

 

The assimilation of satellite radiances is crucial for Numerical Weather Prediction (NWP) models.  The Infrared Atmospheric Sounding Interferometer (IASI) instruments, on board the MetOp-A, -B, and -C satellites, designed to provide accurate atmospheric temperature and humidity profiles, have the largest impact on NWP at the UK Met Office.  Information on the atmospheric temperature profile comes mainly from the CO2 absorption band around 667 cm-1 (15 μm).  This project aims to improve the retrieved temperature profiles from IASI observations using new spectroscopic data for carbon dioxide.

 

The studentship will be based at the University of Leicester, and will include the opportunity for placements at the UK Met Office.

This studentship, commencing in October 2020, is competition funded through the CENTA DTP and only available for UK or EU students.

The deadline for applications is 10 January.

Please do not hesitate to contact me at jh592@leicester.ac.uk if you require further information.
