I'm a Scientist March 2016: Who's taking part?

Click for the map of schools taking part. I m a Scientist, Get me out of here is back! In March students at nearly 130 schools from Devon to Mallaig will be interacting with 45 scientists across 9 different zones during this year s British Science Week.

Between 7th 18th March school students will put the scientists through their paces in fast-paced live chats and probing questions on everything from the changing climate, to our understanding of gravity, to toxic substances, to what fat has ever done for us.

What do we know about the coming winter?

15 09 2015 There has been some speculation in the media today that we may be in for a long, bitterly cold winter because an El Ni o 1 is under way in the tropical Pacific 2 . However it is still far too early to speculate about what sort of winter the UK will have. During an El Ni o 3 sea surface temperature in the east Pacific warms, altering weather patterns around the globe.

The influence of an El Ni o over the UK and western Europe tends to be weaker and less predictable than elsewhere because of how far away we are from the event itself. There is a link in late winter, when we can see a slightly higher risk of a colder than usual end to winter in El Ni o years. This map shows the effect El Nino has on temperatures around the globe.

That s not where it ends when looking at the UK winter, though. Other factors also have an influence, such as sea surface temperature in the North Atlantic, 4 the Sun s output, and changes in winds high in the atmosphere above the Equator known as the Quasi-Biennial Oscillation. These could wipe out the influence from El Ni o, and all of them need to be taken into account to predict the winter.

Scientist and Manager of Met Office Predictability Research, Dr Doug Smith, said: We continue to make improvements in the developing area of long-range forecasting but with all the competing influences in the climate it remains too early to predict the coming winter with much confidence. Our 30-day forecasts 5 remain the best way for the public to get a long-range look at the weather we ll see, while our detailed 5-day forecasts 6 and warnings 7 will keep everyone up-to-date for any periods of severe weather.
