RMetS Autumn Series of Meteorological Masterclasses
The Royal Meteorological Society announces the third series of the Meteorological Masterclasses, in partnership with the University of Reading, which will take place in October.
The theme for this series is ‘The Oceans and Atmosphere: Maritime Meteorology and Climate‘. These masterclasses aim to discuss and explore the interactions between the ocean and the atmosphere. Places to attend these events are FREE thanks to the sponsor FleetWeather, and aim to support continuing professional development (CPD) for practising operational meteorologists and climate scientists. This series will cover broad topics relevant to marine meteorology, such as tropical cyclone development; changes in Arctic sea ice; and recent developments in atmosphere/ocean modelling and coupling in numerical weather prediction. Each masterclass webinar will be held from 3 pm to 4.30 pm (BST), consisting of a presentation followed by the opportunity for questions and discussion with the speaker. Whilst the webinars are part of a series, attendance at all three events is not compulsory.
