What would happen if we suddenly warmed the entire ocean at the sea-surface? Would suddenly cooling it down cause an equal and opposite response? Using ocean climate models we have carried out these and many more extreme experiments. The student will explore the asymmetric and often surprising behaviour of the ocean.Read More

Errors in identifying the fire scar – the portion of a long-lasting bushfire that is actively burning or smouldering, are the largest errors in forecasting emissions from these events. This project will develop and analyse fire progression tracking using data from the 2019 – 2020 bushfire season.Read More
Dryness is defined by ratio of accumulated annual rainfall and potential evapotranspiration (PET). Understanding changes in dryness will help stakeholders and policy makers making long-term plans in water management and mitigation/adaptation. In this study, the 50-km resolution climate simulations from the NARCliM outer domain will be used to assess the future changes in dryness.Read More
The Australian Alps are the highest mountain range in Australia and is an important region in terms of ecosystem, biodiversity, energy generation and winter tourism. Alpine areas are vulnerable to climate change. This project will use NARCLiM simulations to analyse the relationship between warming rates and changes in albedo and surface energy budget.Read More
This project will assess how precipitation projections for Australia from global and regional models scale using the latest start-of-the-art regional and global climate models.Read More
