Biography

Wuhu Feng joined the school in December 2001 to work with Professor Martyn Chipperfield using the TOMCAT/SLIMCAT offline chemical transport model (CTM) for studies of stratospheric ozone depletion and upper troposphere tracer transport. He now holds an NCAS position to support development of the TOMCAT/GLOMAP CTM for community science studies and as a testbed for the aerosol and chemistry schemes used in UK Earth System Model (UKESM1).

In co-funded work, Wuhu also works with Professors John Plane (School of Chemistry) and Martyn Chipperfield (ICAS) on upper atmosphere studies using the NCAR global whole atmospheric chemistry climate model (WACCM). The aim of this work is to insert metal chemistry (Na, Fe, Ca and Mg) into WACCM to probe the chemistry and dynamics of the mesosphere lower thermosphere, and to examine the response of the metal layers to the solar cycle, solar proton events, noctilucent clouds and climate change in the middle atmosphere. This work is funded by NERC.
