Professor Yadvinder Malhi, is leading a team of scientists researching the impact of climate change on the forests of the Peruvian Andes. His report will influence national and international policymaking.
Scientists at the University of Oxford are developing yet further a computer model that will forecast the environmental risks to Britain’s coastline for decades ahead. This will be of immense value to local authority planning departments.
Within every weather and climate forecast there is embedded a degree of uncertainty. This is inevitable. The big question for meteorologists and climatologists is: how do you quantify that uncertainty? This is the subject of Professor Tim Palmer’s research at Oxford University.
