Welcome to the UWERN Microscale Web Page

  A view of the Isle of Arran Universities Weather Research Network

The microscale modelling project started on 1st January 2003. It was set up and approved as an integral part of UWERN to develop a new microscale model for the UWERN community. The aim was to resolve physical and dynamical scales down to a few metres, and enable resolution of flow over steep terrain and other atmospheric high resolution processes in the atmosphere and this is described in the original proposal . It is envisaged that this is a eight plus year project, with a useful lifetime of not less than fifteen years. An objective is to promote input from a wide cross section of the UK community, including other UWERN funded research as well as participation from the UK Met Office and other research institutes. A series of workshops are planned.
