Antje Weisheimer

Senior NCAS Research Fellow

As a Senior Research Fellow of the National Centre for Atmospheric Science (NCAS) I am part of the Oxford Climate Research Network (OCRN). My interests are mainly model-based weather and climate forecasts and the uncertainties associated with them.

I also hold a joint position as a scientist at the European Centre for Medium-Range Weather Forecasts (ECMWF) in Reading where I work on monthly (sub-seasonal) and seasonal forecasts.

I am a Research Fellow at Wolfson College Oxford.

Since 2014 I have been an Associate Editor of the Quarterly Journal of the Royal Meteorological Society and since 2016 I have been a member of the Editorial Board for Nature Scientific Reports.

My areas of interest include

  • Predictability on sub-seasonal, seasonal to decadal time scales
  • Assessing model uncertainty in weather and climate forecasts
  • Seamless prediction of weather and climate

Research projects in progress:

  • SPECS (Seasonal-to-decadal climate Predictions for the improvements of European Climate Services), EC FP7, work package leader on Addressing Model Inadequacy, cross-cutting theme leader on Dealing with Uncertainty, people: Dr. David MacLeod
  • EUCLEIA (EUropean CLimate and weather Events: Interpretation and Attribution), EC FP7, people: Dr. Nathalie Schaller
  • IMPETUS (Improving Predictions of Drought for User Decision-Making), NERC, people: Dr. Tess Parker
  • SummerTIME (Summer: Testing Influences and Mechanisms for Europe): NERC, people: Dr. Chris O'Reilly

For more research details, see the Predictability group pages.

If you cannot predict the weather next month ...

... how can you predict the climate for the coming decade?

The Predictability of Weather and Climate group meetings are normally held on Mondays at 11.30 in the Hooke or AOPP meeting room.

Here is the link to the AOPP seminars on Thursdays 11.30 in the Dobson Lecture Room.

The Oxford Martin School offers a range of interesting seminars, see here.
