Land-Atmosphere interactions and seasonal Precipitation over Brazil: Synthesis of observations and process-based Evaluation (LAPSE).

LAPSE is part of the wider CSSP Brazil programme coordinated by the Met Office.

As part of this project, researchers in the School of Earth and Environment are using data from Earth observation satellites to study how the land surface and the atmosphere interact to affect tropical climate, and evaluating how well these processes are represented in global climate models.
