Dr. Laura Wilcox

Associate Professor (NCAS)

Research Interests:

  • The impact of atmospheric aerosol on climate and climate change
  • The response of large-scale circulation to regional radiative forcing
  • The climate impact of aviation

Research Projects:

  • RAMIP (Regional Aerosol Model Intercomparison Project) will quantify the role of anthropogenic aerosol in the spread in near-term climate projections. The experiments are based on the Shared Socioeconomic Pathways and designed to quantify the role of global and regional aerosol changes in near-term projections, and explore sensitivities to aerosol type and location. Please get in touch if you would like to participate.
  • CATHY (Climate implications of rapid changes in Asian Anthropogenic Aerosol emissions: Temperature, Hydrological cycle and variabilitY) is quantifying climate related hazards resulting from ongoing and projected changes in Asian aerosol emissions. The range of climate impacts and societal hazards may dominate regionally over greenhouse gas induced trends for the next several decades, but are not well understood. I am analysing global responses to local aerosol changes in climate models with a range of complexities to better understand the physical mechanisms involved.
  • TerraFIRMA is assessing a range of climate mitigation strategies and investigating the risks and consequences associated with overshooting key global warming targets, including the risk of rapid change in a range of regional climate phenomena and the potential reversibility of any triggered changes. My work focusses on the role of near-future changes in anthropogenic aerosol emissions, and the potential air quality co-benefits in climate mitigation strategies.

Previous Research Projects:

  • Climate Science for Service Partnership: China (CSSP China)
    We are working to understand the regional climate responses to changes in anthropogenic and natural aerosol changes. We are investigating the physical drivers of changes in seasonal-mean climate, temperature and precipitation extremes, and circulation patterns that make poor air quality events more likely.
  • The North Atlantic Climate System Integrated Study (ACSIS)
    ACSIS aims to detect, explain and predict changes in the North Atlantic climate system. I am working to quantify the role of aerosol in shaping change in the North Atlantic Climate System from the 19th century to the near future.
    This project will assess the impact of climate change on climate hazards in the past and present and project forward their changes into the future. There is a focus on the next 30 years because of the relevance of this time scale for adaptation strategies. Our group in Reading is quantifying the effect of aerosol on climate hazards, with a particular focus on the monsoons.
  • Securing Multidisciplinary UndeRstanding and Prediction of Hiatus and Surge events (SMURPHS)
    The aim of SMURPHS is to understand the causes of periods where the rate of global-mean surface temperature is increased or decreased at decadal time-scales compared with long term (multi-decadal) trends. My work will characterise the interactions between the climate response to anthropogenic aerosol emissions and natural variability.
  • EUropean CLimate and weather Events: Interpretation and Attribution (EUCLEIA)
    EUCLEIA facilitated new scientific developments that provided the foundation of an operational attribution service. I quantified the role of air-sea interactions in the attribution of extreme weather events in Europe, and quantified the relative roles of natural and anthropogenic contributions to the extreme summers of 2012 and 2015, and the extreme winter of 2009-2010.
  • The impacts of aerosol on climate and the water cycle (PAGODA)
    Aerosol affects the hydrological cycle through a range of mechanisms: perturbing the net radiation input at the surface and the top of the atmosphere, altering the microphysics of clouds, and changing the temperature structure of the atmosphere. I identified aerosol influences on the water cycle, and quantified the relative importance of sources of uncertainty in aerosol radiative forcing.
