New website:

By Martin

I've created a new website - - dedicated to my fellowship project which I described in the previous post. I though it would be a good idea to gather together blog posts, publications and updates from this project all in one place. Enjoy!

New post at Nottingham and the 'Imperial Weather' project

It's been a long time coming but this week I finally took up my new fellowship position in the School of Geography at the University of Nottingham.
