Corte-Real, J.



JCR was born in 1942 and graduated in Geophysical Sciences from the Faculty of Science, University of Lisbon in 1963; did the meteorologist ‘s stage to National Weather Service in 1964; collaborated on the Unit Mathematical Forecasting Weather National Weather Service (1970-1979); was deputy director of the National Institute of Meteorology and Geophysics (1988-1990). Other functions: President of the National Committee of the IGBP (International Geosphere - Biosphere Program); member of the Monitoring Committees of the European Commission and evaluator of European projects. Was Professor for 38 years at FCUL, which formed in 1991, the Group of Meteorology / Climatology, Department of Physics and Institute of Applied Science and Technology ( ICAT ), in research in climate dynamics, statistical climatology , climate variability , climate change and its impacts, the numerical simulation of atmospheric circulation on a regional scale . In 2001, becomes full Professor at the University of Évora. Retired since January 2008. Standing a visiting professor in the Department of Agricultural Engineering of the same University; still supporting the 2nd Cycle of Environmental Sciences and 3rd cycle of Computational Astrophysics. In 2007 creates the sub - group ASC_ICAAM - "Water, Soil and Climate" at the Institute of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences Mediterranean, and its coordinator until April/2012 . This group, made up of an interdisciplinary team, which addressed issues of fundamental and applied research relating to water, ended with the restructuring required by the FCT ( Foundation for Science and Technology ) to all Research Centres . Since November 2013, joins the Group 's WSM_CC ICAAM ( Soil and Water Management and Climate Change) as developer; this group also consists of a interdisciplinary team whose research falls into the following thematic areas: Hydrology and climate; Efficient utilization of nutrients and water in horticulture; Sustainable management systems and soil conservation; Hydraulic systems and smart irrigation. Since February 2012, is Lecturer by the DAT – Department of Aeronautics and Transport /ULHT. Throughout his teaching guided over a hundred students at all levels; participated in more than two dozen projects (national, European and African ) and has published over a hundred scientific articles . Among other organizations, is a member of the World Programme of Research on Climate (WCRP) of the World Meteorological Organization ( WMO), Geneva . At present, its main area of research focuses on climate variability and its impacts on regional modeling scenarios, the physics of clouds and precipitation in atmosphere dynamics in hydroclimatology and ecohydrology.
