Research over the past few months has given the RP2 team significant insights into sudden stratospheric warming events, modelling of marine heatwaves, the impacts of transient warming, how drying tends influence heatwaves, and future energy use in cities as the globe warms.

What would happen if we suddenly warmed the ocean at the sea-surface? Would suddenly cooling it down cause an equal and opposite response? The student will work towards developing novel theories to describe the ocean’s response to extreme perturbations. These theories are needed to understand the ocean's role in transient climate change.
