A week of engaging with Southern African climate researchers in Bristol

The SALIENT team and members of the dynamics group had several productive meetings last week in Bristol including:

  1. A visit from Sebastian Engelstaedter (University of Oxford) who presented on “Quantifying uncertainties in ERA5 surface variables over Africa using MIDAS station data”.
  2. On the 6th June we hosted the Africa Meteorology and Climate (Africa MAC) group in Geography for members to present on their research and meet the community. This meeting was held in person with a hybrid option for those who could not attend in person. We had a great turnout with over 60 attendees.
  3. The Bristol SALIENT team met with Oxford researchers to have a Southern Africa Science meeting focussing on the mechanisms of climate change.
