  • Can CAPE be used as a post-processing tool for systematic errors in shortwave radiation forecasts?

    This report is a result of research into the use of CAPE as a representation of convective instability in the atmosphere and convective clouds. These clouds would result in differing values of shortwave radiation (SW) and could produce a possible systematic error in reanalysis data. Through post-processing this systematic error could be reduced to create a […]

    Article title: Two-Dimensional Indices of Atmospheric Blocking and their statistical relationship with Winter Climate Patterns in the Euro-Atlantic Region. (Published in the International Journal of Climatology in 2006) This article identified some statistical linkage existing between climate variability patterns and the frequency of atmospheric blocking over the Euro-Atlantic region. The research of this article started […]

  • Wind Energy Science Conference 2017

    I had a great trip to the Wind Energy Science Conference 2017 last week (28 June 2017) in DTU, Copenhagen, where I saw lots of interesting presentations about wind power forecasting. I gave a talk about our ESIPP research, comparing wind and solar observation data to reanalysis data and forecast data. I made the point […]
