Welcome to Simon Lee’s website. I am a Postdoctoral Research Scientist in the Department of Applied Physics and Applied Mathematics at Columbia University, New York. I hold PhD and MMet degrees from the Department of Meteorology at the University of Reading, UK. I am also one of two Editors-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 publications
- Weather and climate science blog
- Some useful web links to monitor the stratosphere
My PhD investigated 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:
