UMELB02: Convection and extreme rainfall characteristics using radar

The accumulation of rainfall over a given area depends on a range of things, including duration, intensity, and propagation speed. It is the characteristics of convection that ultimately determine these rainfall properties. The idea for this project is to use a simple method to characterise the properties of the most intense convective / rainfall bearing systems from radar data.

UMELB01: TRENDS OF FOSSIL FUEL AND POLLUTANT EMISSIONS IN SOUTHEAST ASIAN CITIES BASED ON SATELLITE DATA AND MACHINE LEARNING

In this project the student will apply a new algorithm to map the expansion of cities across Southeast Asia. Combining this with proxies of energy consumption and fossil fuel emission the student will establish trends in regional emissions and project these emission trends into the future.

MON02: THE ANTARCTIC OZONE HOLE AND AUSTRALIAN RAINFALL

In this project you will investigate the competing effects the Antarctic ozone hole and increasing greenhouse gases have on the Australian summer season rainfall, using the latest climate models. These are now available on the National Computing Infrastructure (NCI) supercomputer and are being used as input into the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change’s Sixth Assessment Report.
