What's Happening to Our Weather?


Jason Lowe is a Met Office Science Fellow whose activities have included being chief scientist on the recently completed multidisciplinary AVOID programme, which enabled the UK to better understand and plan to avoid potentially dangerous climate changes. Additionally he played a major part in setting up and performing the global climate simulations that informed the carbon budgets in the UK Climate Change Act.

Prior to this his focus was sea level and Dr. Lowe led the climate science component of the Thames Estuary 2100 project – which considered the need to upgrade the Thames Barrier - and was lead author of the UKCP09 Marine Report. His research interests include thresholds in the climate systems and calculation of the constraints on future climate pathways.
