Maynooth University Alumni Lecture
"Crystal Balls or Cutting Edge Science?"
Dr Emily Gleeson is a graduate of Experimental Physics and Chemistry from Maynooth University. Following this, she pursued a Ph.D. in Astronomy and a Masters in Meteorology which led to her current career as a research scientist at Met Éireann, the Irish Meteorological Service. Emily also worked as a weather forecaster and a climate change researcher. In her talk, Emily will give an insight into the science behind weather forecasting. Her talk will include an overview of weather observations and new types of useful data for meteorology, the computer models used for forecasting and how far ahead weather predictions can be made using these models. She will also talk about where the science of weather forecasting is going and will give an overview of some of the new projects that Met Éireann is involved in.
