Following a short period of inactivity to complete my undergraduate studies, from today I am returning to writing on this blog on a regular basis.
So what have I been doing?
Over the course of the past few months I have completed my undergraduate studies and graduated from the University of Southampton with a 2:1 in BSc Physical Geography with Geology. More recently, I have been accepted onto a postgraduate masters course at the University of Reading, where I will study MSc Applied Meteorology starting this September. I thoroughly enjoyed my three years in Southampton and will take many amazing memories away with me, including many good friends. I’m looking forward to a new and exciting academic challenge at the University of Reading, where I will be studying at a world-renowned institution for meteorology.
New name, new look, new content
It may not have escaped your attention that I’ve given the blog a superficial makeover. As well as a fresh, new design, the website domain has been changed from “GeoJamesBlog.wordpress.com” to GeoJames.co.uk. I feel this slight identity change will be beneficial to the blog in the long-term.
I will continue to post news updates and features on geographical, geological and environmental matters, but in accordance with my forthcoming masters course in meteorology, a larger portion of news articles and features will be on the topic of weather and climatic. In particular, I plan to write a review article, to be published every few Mondays (and aptly named ‘MetMondays’), which will summarise the global weather events of the period, alongside a review of any published academia on the subject of meteorology.
In the immediate future, I shall be delivering an update on the Greenland360 expedition, of which this blog is an official supporter, as well as a report from an educational collaboration between the Natural History Museum and the Universities of Oxford, East Anglia, and West Indies Seismic Research Centre.
Thank you for nearly 600 followers (officially 597!) and I hope you enjoy the ‘new’ GeoJames.co.uk.
