This is the project homepage for the DYMECS project (Dynamical and Microphysical Evolution of Convective Storms).

All our cases are grouped in different periods above. Each case will have links to model surface rain rate comparisons, Chilbolton quicklook images, and brief summaries of statistics.

To see animations of cloud evolution at 5-minute intervals in the 1.5-km and 200-m models, use the link top right (also available on Robin Hogan's research page).

Some cases have already been studied in depth with the model, summarised on Kirsty Hanley's research page.
