Atmospheric processes and phenomena of a range of spatial and temporal scales, particularly synoptic and sub-synoptic scale meteorology and climatology. A key research focus is investigation of the effects of the Earth’s surface on the atmosphere near the ground and applications to human activity.Specific recent topics include: wind and storm hazards (legal insurance work); the modelling and measurement of air pollution and dust dispersion; meteorological and climatological applications in agriculture, such as frost protection and the selection of sites for vineyard development; evaluating wind energy potential in regions of complex terrain and short term prediction of wind energy generation; and investigation of the processes controlling the thermal environment of coral reefs.
