A final reminder:
The University of Birmingham is looking to recruit a number of Research Fellows, each for at least 24 months, to further the state-of-the-art in ionospheric-thermospheric modelling as part of the NERC funded SWIMMR (Space Weather Instrumentation, Measurement, Modelling and Risk) programme.
SWIMMR is a £20 million, five-year programme that will improve the UK's capabilities for space weather monitoring and prediction with an emphasis on space radiation, changes in the upper atmosphere and, unwanted currents in power grids and other ground-level systems. These present significant risks to the infrastructures we rely on in daily life, as identified in the UK's National Risk Register.
The Space Environment and Radio Engineering (SERENE) group at the University of Birmingham is leading the SWIMMR effort on forecasting the Earth’s Upper Atmosphere. The cornerstone of this work is based on the development and use of the Advanced Ensemble electron density [Ne] Assimilation System (AENeAS). AENeAS is a physics-based data assimilation model which will be run operationally at the Met Office Space Weather Operations Centre (MOSWOC) to provide environmental nowcasts and forecasts as well as to support systems impacted by the ionosphere/thermosphere including HF communications for aviation and satellite conjunction analysis.
