Dr Pratiman PATEL

Dr Pratiman Patel’s current work focuses on the verification of numerical weather prediction forecasts. His earlier research work was to investigate the influence of urban surface representation on extreme weather events such as heavy rainfall, heatwaves and tropical cyclones. He is also interested in the development of urban datasets that can be used to improve urban scale weather and climate simulations
