  • Adaptive Meshes for Global Atmospheric Modelling

A post-doctoral research assistant at the University of Reading is sought to work on mesh generation using optimal transport techniques and atmospheric modelling on r-adaptive meshes. This is part of the NERC funded project “Moving meshes for Global Atmospheric Modelling” joint with the University of Bath (Prof Chris Budd, Mathamatics) and Imperial College London (Dr Colin Cotter, Mathematics). We are developing novel mathematical techniques involving optimal transport and solving partial differential equations using an advanced C++ library (OpenFOAM). The use of adaptive meshes could enable more accurate and efficient weather prediction models and predictions of the regional impacts of climate change.
