Early Morning

  • The day started by meeting at college at 6.30 am. We then drove down to Manchester airport, ready to fly down to Exceter.
slide3

In Exeter

When we arrived in Exeter, we had transport arranged. We started the day in Exeter by going to the University first, then to the Met Office.

The University

When we arrived at the university, we were

taken to the maths department

Where we met some of the professors

and had some refreshments.

slide5

We then had a tour of the university, given by a student that attended. The tour was

mainly of the grounds and accommodation, as there was not enough time to see all the

separate departments.

The University of Exeter has two campuses in Exeter and in Cornwall.

After our tour of the university, we had a talk about the weather.

The talk showed the governing equations which are used to predict

weather, how the formulas are created, the characters of atmospheric

flow, and the models in spherical geometry.
