  • The Effect of Wind Stress Anomalies and Location in Driving Pacific Subtropical Cells and Tropical Climate

    The importance of subtropical and extratropical zonal wind stress anomalies on Pacific Subtropical Cells (STCs) strength is assessed through several idealized and realistic numerical experiments with a global ocean model. Different zonal wind stress anomalies are employed, and their intensity is strengthened or weakened with respect to the climatological value throughout a suite of simulations. ...

  • Testing confirms warmer seas cause stronger cyclones, says EU

    A new study suggests that the strongest Atlantic tropical cyclones are in fact becoming stronger and that this is related to rising sea temperatures as a result of global warming. Previous work has shown that as sea surface temperatures (SST) rise, the warmer oceans have more energy to drive cyclones. This is known as the 'heat-engine theory of cyclone intensity'. It is therefore expected that ...

  • Ocean Wind Wave Climate Responses to Wintertime North Atlantic Atmospheric Transient Eddies and Low-Frequency Flow

    Atmospheric transient eddies and low-frequency flow contributions to the ocean surface wave climate in the North Atlantic during boreal winter are investigated (1980 - 2016). We conduct a set of numerical simulations with a spectral wave model (WAVEWATCH III) forced by decomposed wind fields derived from the ERA-Interim reanalysis (0.7° horizontal resolution). Synoptic-scale processes (2-10 ...

  • ADMS-Urban Temperature and Humidity Model Study of London`s Olympic Parkland

    Dr Jenny Stocker (CERC) co-authored a recently published journal article that explores the sensitivities of the ADMS-Urban Temperature and Humidity model predictions of local urban temperatures to input parameters, using London's Olympic parkland as a case study. In particular, the land use parameters were modified to reflect building materials as well as functional types, causing up to 3°C ...

  • Predicting disruptive wind shear at Hong Kong Airport using Flowstar

    CERC and Hong Kong Observatory continue to work towards developing a new system for real-time prediction of wind speed and direction for Hong Kong Airport. Where airports are located adjacent to hilly terrain, flights are periodically disrupted by turbulent air flow. The meteorological conditions experienced by pilots landing at Hong Kong International Airport on the island of Chek Lap Kok are ...

  • Vacancy for a Scientific Software Developer at CERC

    Headline CERC is looking to recruit a bright graduate or post-doc to join our team of 12 software developers and air quality scientists in Cambridge. Why you'd like to join us CERC develops, supports and promotes environmental software used in commercial and research applications worldwide, including the widely-used Atmospheric Dispersion Modelling System, ADMS. The company's developers and ...

  • Largest Antarctic ice sheet more sensitive to ocean warming than previously thought

    The largest ice sheet in the world, the east Antarctic ice sheet, may succumb to climate change faster than thought, according to recent research. Warming ocean currents, triggered by shifting wind patterns, could accelerate melting of the ice sheet, leading to a rise in sea levels, say the researchers. The east Antarctic ice sheet has an average thickness of over 2 km and can reach more than 4 ...

  • Air Velocity, Actual or Reference Conditions?

    How many thermal anemometers actually provide air velocity calibration readings at standard reference conditions, rather than actual test conditions. Most late model units do provide this facility and this is clearly described in the operations manual. But what about older model types? Do you correct your anemometer wind speed readings to standard conditions? Do you know how to do this? If not ...

  • Flying the eco-friendly skies

    In what could set the stage for a fundamental shift in commercial aviation, an MIT-led team has designed a green airplane that is estimated to use 70 percent less fuel than current planes while also reducing noise and emission of nitrogen oxides (NOx). The design was one of two that the team, led by faculty from the Department of Aeronautics and Astronautics, presented to NASA last month as part ...

  • Climate change brings ill winds for airline industry

    Global warming may already be taking its toll of air miles. As jet planes burn fuel and release carbon dioxide, the atmosphere warms and causes head winds to build up. Tail winds do too, but round trip journey times are nevertheless creeping up − and so are fuel costs. A team of US scientists say the cumulative effect of the longer flight times that they think may have resulted from ...

  • Researchers predict a less stormy Atlantic on the horizon

    For countries lying around the edge of the Atlantic Ocean, the coming century may be less stormy than expected, according to a new study. A team of researchers has created a model to forecast the frequency of Atlantic hurricanes and tropical storms, and predicted that they are likely to decrease during the 21st century as temperatures increase with climate change. Atlantic hurricane frequency, ...

  • NREL Receives $1.38 Million from DOE to Help Commercialize Promising Clean Energy Technologies

    The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) announced that the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) will be receiving $1.38 million from DOE to lead four projects for the Technology Commercialization Fund (TCF). The funds will be used to advance promising renewable energy-related technologies with commercial potential and help strengthen the partnerships between the national labs and ...

  • OWA issues Expression of Interest to wider industry to further research on pioneering measurement campaign

    The Carbon Trust’s Offshore Wind Accelerator has completed the analysis of data gathered from the pioneering £2 million measurement campaign at E.ON’s Rødsand 2 wind farm, and has now launched a call for Expressions of Interest from other organisations who want to access and continue research of the data. The Carbon Trust’s Offshore Wind Accelerator (OWA) has ...

  • Real-Time Wind Prediction for Hong Kong Airport

    CERC and Hong Kong Observatory have developed a new system for real-time prediction of wind speed and direction. The system has been successfully applied to Hong Kong Airport, where flights are often disrupted by turbulence downwind of the mountain ridge on Lantau Island. The speed of CERC's FLOWSTAR model enables real-time predictions by integrating real-time wind profiler and radiosonde ...

  • São Paulo to invest US$63m on climate research

    The State of São Paulo Research Foundation (FAPESP) has announced a new US$63 million investment initiative for research on global climate change and its impact on Brazil. Over the next ten years, FAPESP will offer US$6—7 million every year to climate researchers. FAPESP will also look to bring in other institutions to add more funding to the programme. The two first proposal calls are for ...

  • Are emissions fueling Australian droughts?

    American scientists have just confirmed that parts of Australia are being slowly parched because of greenhouse gas emissions – which means that the long-term decline in rainfall over south and south-west Australia is a consequence of fossil fuel burning and depletion of the ozone layer by human activity. Such a finding is significant for two reasons. One remains contentious: it is one ...
