Research brief: Urban heat island effect amplifies Sydney heatwaves

This research uses Sydney, Australia’s largest city, as a test case for our new configuration of the Weather and Research Forecasting model run at a very high resolution of 800 m with a new urban classification scheme that describes the complexity of Sydney’s built environment.

PhD position (Spain) on Precipitation extremes, climate change and convection-permitting models

The University of the Balearic Islands (Spain) is seeking a highly motivated PhD candidate to work on sub-hourly precipitation extremes using convection-permitting models. The project is aimed at understanding the processes that will contribute to future potential changes in sub-hourly rainfall extremes over the Mediterranean region, which is frequently exposed to very high-impact severe weather conditions.
