The UK Climate Resilience Programme ran from 2019 to 2023

Simon Brown (Met Office)

Simon Brown joined the Met Office’s Hadley Centre in 1996 and has been working in climate research ever since, apart from a two-year secondment to DEFRA as an embedded scientist providing climate science advice directly to policymakers.  Simon has focussed on climate and weather extremes for a number of years particularly the future prediction of very rare events from a probabilistic perspective leading to the first, soon to be released, UKCP extremes products.  Simon’s current interest is developing tools to correctly account for the spatial and temporal extremal dependence present in weather hazards so that accurate probabilities of extreme events are calculated now and in the future.
