March 2015 Near-Total Solar Eclipse

On Friday 20 March 2015 there was a rare near-total solar eclipse visible from the UK. The Department of Meteorology ran a series of events and experiments, both at the University and elsewhere, during the eclipse.

NEWEx - National Eclipse Weather Experiment

A solar eclipse briefly dims the radiation coming from the Sun, leading to cooling in the atmosphere with interesting effects on the weather. To study these effects, the Department of Meteorology ran the NEWEx - National Eclipse Weather Experiment, a citizen science project to collect weather data during the solar eclipse for detailed analysis.
