This research uses commercial aircraft data and high-resolution simulations to study a case in 2005 over the United States where severe turbulence was encountered about 50km away from a large mesoscale convective system. Of relevance, current aviation turbulence avoidance guidelines recommend avoiding storms by 32 km (20 miles).
This project analyzes satellite images and other observational data to study two-way interactions between convection and tropospheric waves. In particular, it investigates how these interactions influence patterns of convection and clouds. Numerical experiments in the form of high-resolution simulations are designed to support the results.
In an hour-long talk to a business forum, Andy Pitman said: “there is no link between climate change and drought”. Given the audience were not climate scientists, or interested in the physics of the climate, this statement was one word too brief. Andy fully admits he should have said: “there is no direct link between climate change and drought”.

PhD opportunity: Water, elevated CO2 and growth: plant ecophysiological responses in a Free Air CO2 Enrichment experimentAugust 30, 2019 10:26 am Comments Off on PhD opportunity: Water, elevated CO2 and growth: plant ecophysiological responses in a Free Air CO2 Enrichment experiment
This project will involve measurements in a cutting-edge global change field experiment to close this knowledge gap by examining plant growth responses to elevated CO2 during repeated drought cycles.
PhD opportunity: Unravelling the role of lags and legacies in explaining the response of grasslands to elevated CO2August 30, 2019 10:19 am Comments Off on PhD opportunity: Unravelling the role of lags and legacies in explaining the response of grasslands to elevated CO2
This project will apply a state of the art, hierarchical Bayesian modelling framework to determine how past climatic conditions influence current responses to high CO2concentrations. The project will use data from a new, specially-designed experiment, as well as results from past Free-Air Carbon dioxide Enrichment (FACE) and Open-top chamber (OTC) experiments, to close this knowledge gap.
The CLEX node at the University of NSW is offering several PhD scholarships on a competitive basis. Details of how to apply can be found on this page along with some example projects offered by our researchers.
Xarray is the python library which is widely used for analysing Earth System Data stored in netCDF files. CMS has prepared eight short videos (most are between 5 and 7 minutes) that can be watched at your own pace before the training and a series of problem notebooks.
The Postdoctoral Research Associate will work on a new ARC-funded project exploring how vulnerable Australia’s eucalypts are to future droughts. This project will combine data-synthesis, experimental manipulation and modelling to deliver new process-orientated insight into the response of eucalyptus trees to projected changes in the frequency, magnitude and duration of future droughts across Australia.
