Tom Matthews | Meteorology on Everest

Join climate scientist Tom Matthews to learn about the weather on Earth’s highest peak! Tom took part in National Geographic and Rolex's Perpetual Planet Extreme Expedition to Mt. Everest, where he helped establish the world's highest weather station. He joined a team of international scientists, storytellers, and climbers on a two-month expedition, to research into the effects of climate change on the glaciers and the environment on the mountain. Two weather stations were installed by Dr Matthews, Dr Baker Parry from Appalachian State University (North Carolina, USA), and a team of Sherpas, and sit at 8,430 meters and 7,945 meters. They will provide researchers, climbers and the public, with near real-time information about mountain conditions.

Tom is a climate scientist with particular interests in the sensitivity of Earth systems to climate variability and change. His specific areas of expertise include glacier-climate interactions and extreme events – from mid-latitude storms to heatwaves and hurricanes. Tom is a Lecturer in Climate Science at Loughborough University in the UK.
