James Weber

James Weber is an atmospheric chemist and climate scientist and Assistant Professor at the Department of Meteorology at the University of Reading, UK. His research interests involve the interactions between atmospheric composition and climate with a specific focus on climate change mitigation strategies including wide scale reforestation and methane reductions. Dr Weber contributes to the scientific development of the UK Met Office’s United Kingdom Earth System Model (UKESM) and uses it to perform experiments to examine how changes to atmospheric composition (chemistry and aerosols) will affect climate and, in turn, may be affected by climate. He is also interested in air quality having done research into moorland burning in the UK’s Peak District and clean air zones in several UK cities.
