Forthcoming SOUE Events
SOUE members are invited to the 2013 Maurice Lubbock Memorial Lecture and Departmental Open Day, which is on Wednesday 15 May. The lecture will be given by Stefano Domenicali, team principal of the Ferrari Formula One team, entitled "Ferrari"; there will also be an exhibition of research undertaken in the Information Engineering Building, as well as the annual project exhibition. Please note that the deadline for registration has now passed. For information about the Lubbock Day please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
This year's Jenkin Lecture will be on Saturday 21 September, given by Dr Andy Brown of the Meteorological Office, with title "Weather and climate prediction: science and application across timescales" and the following synopsis:
Dramatic improvements have been made in the quality of weather and climate predictions over the last two decades. For example, three day weather forecasts are now as accurate as one day forecasts were twenty years ago. Complex numerical models are at the heart of the prediction systems. This talk will focus on the science behind these models and the commonalities and differences between the challenges faced for weather and climate prediction. The wide and increasing range of applications for weather and climate intelligence will also be discussed.
More details about this and the Jenkin weekend generally will be available later, but please put this date in your diaries now.
