Carly Wright: About Me

I am a PhD student working with Prof. Suzanne Gray, University of Reading, Prof. David Schultz, University of Manchester, and Prof. Daniel Kirshbaum, McGill University, on the generation of downwind rainbands by mountains. So far my research has mainly focused on a case study of a rainband which was generated over Scotland in December 2012. This has enabled me to identify the plotting tools needed for the next stage of my research. The next stage of my research is to compare the output from the idealised MetUM using two different dynamics: NewDynamics and ENDGame. The final part of my project will be to test 3 mechanisms of the generation of downwind rainbands using the idealised MetUM with ENDGame dynamics. Photo
