ABOUT ME

In 2001 I retired from the Eleanor Rathbone Chair of Sociology in the University of Liverpool and now live in Carmel (near Holywell) in North Wales and continue with my research and writing.

I am married with a son, daughter and four grandsons. My hobbies include gardening and photography – when I have the time.

I have always been deeply committed to the peace movement and to the struggle against racismin all its forms, I’m a member of the North Wales Regional Equality Network, a governor of two schools, Holywell High School and Ysgol Gwenffrwd.

ABOUT WEATHER STATION

I run a small weather station at which I also receive images from weather satellites, including the NOAA series of polar orbiting satellites. The NOAA19 image, right, was received on March 1st 2010 and shows much of northern UK under snow, with a front moving up the channel to bring snow to southern England.

The Meteosat-9 geostationary satellite gives an image of our hemisphere every 15 minutes (and there is a ‘rapid scan’ of Northern latitudes every 5 minutes from Meteosat-8). On the left you can see the image of Europe for noon on 15th July 2006 showing the UK and the near continent under clear summer skies. These false colour images were produced using David Taylor’s GeoSatSignal software.

My weather station is a good, old fashioned outdoor weather station where the observations are recorded at 1800 UTC daily. The barograph and Fortin barometer are situated indoors. Because of my occasional absences I also have a Davis Vantage Pro wireless weather station. The 1800 observations continue in the traditional way.
