How climate change impacts prescribed burning days

July 29, 2020 11:52 am Published by 3 Comments

Climate change will affect prescribed burning days in the future. Unexpectedly, it is not all bad news, but as the coming century progresses there are definitely changes ahead for our firefighters in Australia when it comes to preparing for a fire season, especially along the east coast of Australia.

PhD opportunities in climate extremes and high impact weather

June 1, 2020 10:58 am Published by Comments Off on PhD opportunities in climate extremes and high impact weather

PhD opportunities are now available to work on projects jointly supervised across the ARC Centre of Excellence for Climate Extremes (CLEX) and Bureau of Meteorology. Candidates will be enrolled in one of the CLEX universities and spend significant time at the Bureau of Meteorology. This will allow the student to experience both the University academic and the publicly funded research agency environment.

UNSW08: The effect of the Millennium drought on land

July 19, 2019 8:00 am Published by Comments Off on UNSW08: The effect of the Millennium drought on land

In this project, the student will learn more about the effects of the Millennium drought on the surface energy budget, particularly on the ratio of sensible heat flux to latent heat flux (i.e. SH/LH).

Postdoc, Research Associate: Droughts and eucalyptus trees

July 11, 2019 2:32 pm Published by Comments Off on Postdoc, Research Associate: Droughts and eucalyptus trees

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.

PhD Opportunity: Unravelling the representation of realistic urban neighbourhoods in large scale climate modelling

April 29, 2019 10:22 am Published by Comments Off on PhD Opportunity: Unravelling the representation of realistic urban neighbourhoods in large scale climate modelling

This project will apply state-of-the-art computational fluid dynamics (CFD) simulations of microscale urban flow such as large eddy simulations to develop a 1-D (multi-layer) model of turbulent flow with detailed parameterisation regarding the role of geometry; surface heating and material; and vegetation.
