Honours student

UNSW School of Mathematics

Sida began his honours year in February 2020 as part of his bachelors degree in applied mathematics. He is currently investigating how heat is subducted into the ocean and the effects this has on the overall global climate.

THESIS: Investigating heat subduction into the ocean and the ocean heat uptake efficiency parameter through diagnostics

The proposed topic seeks to improve our understanding of how the ocean responds to heat uptake from solar irradiance and atmospheric processes. This includes how it responds to climate extremes as well as the feedback due to these events which would benefit our ability to predict and respond to certain forcings that are observed.
