The project will make use of latest observational datasets, including climate and flux tower observations, as well as high resolution satellite products developed for Australia to improve drought processes in JULES.
I learnt the benefits of reaching out through e-mail while I was a student, now I receive many cold e-mails myself. Here’s how to write a good one.
Pacific Small Island Developing States (PSIDS) are vulnerable to the adverse effects of changing climate, especially extreme weather such as heavy precipitation leading to flash floods. A problem in assessing the vulnerability of PSIDS to rising weather and climate extremes is a lack of a high spatial resolution climate projection dataset capable of resolving islands (Mycoo et al., 2022). Current projections using Phase 6 of the Climate Model Intercomparison Project (CMIP6) dataset are quite coarse to fully capture the complexity... View Article
This project seeks to better constrain convective zones in Australia and how they may be affected by climate change.
This PhD project will undertake coupled climate model simulations of the Oligocene and Miocene, using Australia’s state-of-the art community earth system model ACCESS-ESM1.5.
Graduates with a strong background in hydrology, mathematics, physics, atmospheric science, climate science, engineering or similar quantitative sciences are particularly encouraged to apply.
The student will use multi-source datasets to identify the drivers of flash droughts and quantify their relative role in the Australian context.
This project investigates the relationship between tropical cyclone characteristics in the Australian sector and the sea surface temperature conditions in the Indian Ocean.
Once a drought has begun the important question is: when will the drought end?
