Erin Thomas

Researcher. Arctic Forecasting; Atmosphere-Wave-Sea Ice Modelling


Erin works on the development of a coupled forecast models for the European Arctic and Barents Sea. Her goal is to determine the impact of wave and sea ice coupling on short term Arctic forecasts and improve Arctic forecast products through better representation of atmosphere, wave, sea ice, sea surface temperature interactions. Erin works extensively with the HARMONIE-AROME configuration of the ALADIN-HIRLAM Numerical Weather Prediction system, Wave Watch III spectral wave model, and the OASIS3 model coupling toolkit.
