Expertise: Researcher – Atmospheric Science
Dr. Mary-Jane Bopape from the South African Weather Service focuses on the improvement of thunderstorm simulations over Southern Africa using numerical weather prediction models through modification of the boundary layer and microphysics parametrisation schemes. Output from these models would also be used to develop products for the agriculture, water, disaster risk reduction and energy and health sectors.
