Welcome to Simon Lee’s website. I am a PhD student studying stratosphere-troposphere coupling in the Department of Meteorology at the University of Reading, UK. I am also Co-Editor-in-Chief of the Royal Meteorological Society journal ‘Weather’.
On this website you can find:
- Forecasts of the Arctic polar vortex
- A list of my peer-reviewed publications
- Weather and climate science blog
- Some useful web links to monitor the stratosphere
My PhD project looks at the predictability and downward coupling of anomalies in the stratospheric circulation and how these influence the weather patterns we experience at the surface. I discuss this more in these blog posts:
