Thomas Lachlan-Cope

Co-Investigator, British Antarctic Survey

I am an atmospheric scientist with a personal interest in cloud microphysical processes. I lead the Climate Processes group at BAS whose role is to investigate the processes that drive the Antarctic Climate system including clouds, surface fluxes, sea ice and links to the upper atmosphere.

I originally joined BAS in 1977 and wintered in Antarctica between 1978 and 1980. I then spent a period as a weather forecaster in the North Sea before completing a PhD in upper atmosphere winds at University of Sheffield. I returned to BAS in 1988.
