Environmental Modelling and Prediction

We use models of natural systems (i.e. rivers, glaciers, oceans and the atmosphere) to understand how these systems work and, in some cases, make predictions.

Predictions may be useful for the scientific community or for managing these systems and their resources.

Quantitative predictive models, are becoming increasingly important for planning in many areas of social and economic life such as agriculture, medicine, insurance, energy generation and transport.

The Environmental Modelling and Prediction Research Group consists of earth, ocean and atmospheric scientists interested in modelling.
