Peter Challenor has broad interests; mainly about uncertainty in the natural world. These range from the statistical analysis of complex numerical models (such as those used to simulate climate) to the interpolation of noisy data and the estimation of the amount of renewable energy in the ocean.

Peter is the principal investigator on the NERC RAPID-WATCH project RAPIT looking at the risk of the shut down or significant slowing of the Atlantic Meridional Current. This project relies on thousands of climate simulations carried out by members of the public via climate If you would like to sign up to help click here
