UK Environmental Prediction (UKEP) project

Jun 24,2020

Lead: Huw Lewis

The UK Environmental Prediction initiative is a national collaboration led by the Met Office, Centre for Ecology & Hydrology, National Oceanography Centre and Plymouth Marine Laboratory. It develops and evaluates the UK’s first fully coupled regional prediction system at kilometre scale, encompassing atmosphere, ocean, wave, land surface, and biogeochemistry model components and their interactions. The aim of the initiative is to enable multi-disciplinary research on Earth system processes at high resolution and to improve future operational applications. One of the exciting aspects of working with coupled systems, illustrated during a workshop held in June 2019, is the need to join together and share different perspectives and expertise from across weather and climate, marine and hydrological science disciplines. For further information on the UK Environmental Prediction collaboration, contact huw.lewis@metoffice.gov.uk or visit https://www.metoffice.gov.uk/research/approach/collaboration/ukenvironmentalprediction
