Speaker information

Lord Julian Hunt, Professor of Climate Modelling, UCL Department of Space & Climate Physics and Department of Earth Sciences, Lord Professor Julian Hunt, Baron Hunt of Chesterton is a leading British authority on turbulence modelling and former Director General and Chief Executive of the UK Meteorological Office. He is Professor of Climate modelling in the Department of Space & Climate Physics and Department of Earth Sciences at University College London.

In this lecture, the reductionist, statistical and combined approaches to modelling climate on a global and regional scale will be outlined and compared. Lord Professor Hunt will also explore how to use data on all scales to compare predictions and draw conclusions about global warming.

Dr Feltham will be speaking about the physics of sea ice melting and how this new physics changes if at all the predictions of Arctic sea ice extent.
