Professor Emily Black

Climate Professor (NCAS)

Responsibilities:

I am Professor of terrestrial processes and climate, research division lead for Earth Observation and Space,and a senior scientist at the National Centre for Atmospheric Science.

I lead the TAMSAT programme. TAMSAT stands for Tropical Applications of Meteorology using SATellite data and ground-based observations. Within TAMSAT we provide a real time rainfall product to stakeholders in Africa and real time forecasts of soil moisture via the TAMSAT-ALERT system. We will shortly be releasing a historical and continuously updated soil moisture dataset.

Research Interests:

  • The hydrological cycle and its associated hazards
  • Land-atmosphere interactions and their impact on climate
  • African climate and rainfall monitoring
  • User-driven science and knowledge exchange
