    Article title: Bias correction of a novel European reanalysis data set for solar energy applications This paper examines the skill of a regional reanalysis COSMO-REA6 compared to BSRN observations. They found a systematic error in the reanalysis: An underestimation of GHI in clear sky conditions – due to the aerosol climatology which causes too strong […]

    Article Title: Tropical Forcing of the Summer East Atlantic Pattern Published in Geophysical Research Letters journal in October 2017. The paper has focused on the second mode of atmospheric summer variability in the Euro-Atlantic sector – the summer East Atlantic pattern (SEA). Recurring to reanalysis data, the authors defined the SEA and showed that (1) […]

  • EGU2018: Regional wind-solar complementarity and atmospheric pressure patterns – a case study for Ireland & the UK

    Last month I attended EGU2018 in Vienna, where I presented a poster titled “Regional wind-solar complementarity and atmospheric pressure patterns – a case study for Ireland & the UK” . This poster was part of the “Energy meteorology and spatial modelling of renewable energies” session (ERE3.1), which was a subset of the “Non-carbon based energy” […]

  • EMS2017: Large scale atmospheric circulation patterns and solar energy resources in the UK and Ireland

    I attended the EMS2017 in DCU, Dublin in September 2017, where I presented a poster titled “Large scale atmospheric circulation patterns and solar energy resources in the UK and Ireland”. This work was part of the Energy Meteorology session (OSA2.6). In this work I focused on the links between some large scale atmospheric circulation patterns […]
