Dr Eleanor Blyth was appointed as a member of the WCRP Joint Scientific Committee (JSC) in 2023.
With over 30 years of academic research and land-surface model development at the UK Centre for Ecology and Hydrology in Wallingford. Eleanor’s scientific expertise is the role of the land surface in climate, meteorology and hydrology, with specialist expertise in Evapotranspiration and Land-Atmosphere Interactions. She has a particular interest in the complex interactions of ecology and hydrology and the role of this interaction in regional carbon budgets of the region. She is known for developing understanding of the physics of land surface models. Especially, the 3 components of evapotranspiration: interception, transpiration and bare soil evaporation using observations and models and for innovative methods for evaluating Land-Atmosphere models.
She has held the following roles in international science committees:
