Jack Giddings
Postgraduate Researcher

Jack graduated from the University of Reading in 2016, having completed a four year MMet Meteorology and Climate degree with a year in Oklahoma. During his time at the Department of Meteorology, he tested the structural uncertainties of the Numerical Atmospheric-Dispersion Modelling Environment (NAME), and the impact of volcanic ash plume dispersion on the aviation industry, based on the 2010 Eyjafjallajökull eruption. This was followed by an undergraduate dissertation investigating tropospheric ozone concentration trends and it’s response to pollution control.

Jack joined Weatherquest as an intern in July 2016, investigating the applications of weather radar as a tool for verifying radar-estimated rainfall totals against rain gauges in the Severn Trent Water region. Jack is now studying for a 3-year PhD at the University of East Anglia, investigating surface ocean processes in the Bay of Bengal and how this affects rainfall during the South-Asian monsoon.
