A Symposium for Adrian Simmons, ECMWF, Shinfield Road, Reading
Former University of Reading meteorologist and Visiting Professor, Adrian Simmons, is being honoured with a research symposium as he retires from his current role at the European Centre for Medium-Range Weather Forecasts this year.
Adrian has, over several years, contributed to numerical weather prediction and climate science in fields ranging from dynamic meteorology and numerical models to atmospheric composition and climate science.
Speakers at the symposium will cover topics such as Adrian’s early academic career (Brian Hoskins) as well as his contributions to numerical aspects and the spectral model (Michel Jarraud); supercomputing (Walter Zwieflhofer); data assimilation (Florence Rabier); climate reanalysis (David Burridge); the Global Climate Observing System (Carolin Richter) and the GEMS and MACC atmospheric composition projects (Vincent-Henri Peuch). The symposium will start at 14:00 and will be followed by a drinks reception at 17:30.
