Africa Group

This page provides information for members of the Africa research group.

The Africa Group is a research group, based at University of Reading. Its members come from various departments and backgrounds, including Meteorology, ESSC, Statistics and Geography. It is for everyone working on or around African meteorology and climate, and is designed to be an opportunity to discuss current projects, work in progress and ideas in an informal atmosphere.

We generally aim to meet every so often, as time and other commitments allow. Further details, such as location, can vary so will be e-mailed to members prior to the meeting. Each session features a number of speakers, who are invited to present to the group. This does not have to be a formal talk in any sense - it can be a few plots showing current work, suggestions for discussion on current ideas, some current weather, or a more formal presentation if the speaker prefers.

All material presented to the Africa Group is available via request.

If you have any questions regarding the group or would like to be added to the mailing list, please feel free to e-mail me.
