ANU01: Southern Hemisphere atmospheric circulation

Anthropogenic climate change has been most clearly observed in the world’s midlatitude regions. The limited number of observations for the Southern Hemisphere has prevented the development of a long-term understanding of these changes. This project aims to fill this critical gap by examining daily changes in Southern Hemisphere atmospheric circulation back to 1830. To do this, the project will build on recently recovered daily instrumental weather observations for southern Australia.

Briefing note 14: The latest global climate models present challenges for generating climate projections

Climate sensitivity describes how sensitive the Earth’s temperature is to a doubling of the amount of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere. One measure of climate sensitivity for projections of future climate is the Equilibrium Climate Sensitivity (ECS). ECS is the increase in the global average temperature between the pre-industrial era and a future doubled carbon dioxide climate once equilibrium of the climate has been reached.

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.
