Objectives

4 reports:
- An end of year 1 report covering the setting up the model MOZART at Manchester Metropolitan University, the preparing the emissions datasets and running initial model experiments.
- An end of year 2 report covering the results of detailed model experiments, comparing model results with observations and running future scenarios.
- An end of year 3 report covering the determination of the parameterization for the climate model and determining the climate impacts of shipping NOx and CO2.
- A final doctoral thesis reporting on the complete project.

Description

This research will dovetail into the European Commission's Integrated Project, 'Quantify', but not duplicate it. Such integration ensures that world class scientists in the area of transportation and climate are accessible to the PhD candidate and that the research will have an international exposure through the programme.
