The mathMETics Project

The mathMETics project is designed to demonstrate the role of mathematics in meteorology, by using mathematics lessons and activites to investigate weather observation and forecasting. The project was developed by Alexander Todd, under the supervision of Peter Ashwin and Christopher Ferro at the University of Exeter, as part of an EPSRC funded summer vacation project for CliMathNet. This website was produced by Alexander Todd and David Leppla-Weber.

The forecast and observation data used in this project is publicly available through the Met Office DataPoint service, this conatins public sector information licensed under the Open Government Licence, available at: http://www.nationalarchives.gov.uk/doc/open-government-licence/version/1/open-government-licence.htm
