Prof. Stephen Belcher is the Met Office Chief Scientist. As Chief Scientist, Stephen has overall responsibility for the leadership and management of the Met Office's scientific programme, by providing strategic direction, ensuring high-quality delivery, and nurturing scientific excellence. He represents the Met Office on science and research technology to UK Government, ensuring that the Met Office science programme fits properly into the wider UK environmental science landscape. In 2010 he became the Joint Met Office Chair in Weather Systems. This role gave him a taster of working closely with the Met Office, and in 2012 he joined the Met Office as Director of the Met Office Hadley Centre.Prof. Belcher led the evolution of the Met Office Hadley Centre to focus on climate science and services: motivated by the need to provide governments, industry, and society with actionable advice, i.e. climate services'. He was a driving force behind the initiation of the Newton Fund Climate Science for Service Partnership China (CSSP China), in which scientists from both China and the UK are now working together to develop fundamental climate science and climate services.
