What does the Met Office chief scientist do all day? (Informal student discussion session):
The Met Office is the UK's national met service providing operational weather forecasts, advice in emergency response for example to releases of toxic material, and hosts the Met Office Hadley Centre which develops climate science and climate services. As Met Office Chief Scientist I am responsible for leading the 500 scientists at the Met Office, and for representing the work of the Met Office into UK Government and beyond. In this informal session I will give a brief introduction to what I do, and then open up to questions and an informal discussion of the work being done by student members of the audience.
