UP student awarded a PhD scholarship for research on climate change

Posted on January 28, 2013

This three-year programme, which commenced in 2013, focuses mainly on research and is offered by the Department of Geography at the University of Sussex in Brighton.

The focus of Ms Lazenby’s research will be on the topic of constraining uncertainty in climate change projections. She will be assessing the quantification of uncertainty in African climate projections with a view to achieving better decision making in the future with regard to natural resources and the environment. Due to the frequent occurrence of extreme events in the African region, the impact of these types of events and their effect on natural resources and the environment will also be assessed. All time scales will be assessed using various climate models to quantify the magnitude of these uncertainties and to determine their possible causes.
