Mathilde Ritman describes her journey as a second-year undergraduate student into a CLEX research project with Linden Ashcroft. It led to a publication, a massive learning curve in coding, stints with the Bureau of Meteorology and CSIRO, and opened a path to a career in climate science.

Navid Constantinou developed a new Julia package that provides solvers for geophysical fluid dynamics problems in periodic domains. It was also the first time he had been involved in an open peer-review process, and this experience was "mind changing".
CLEX researchers explore the challenges of identifying atmospheric rivers and find that detecting these events is highly variable according to resolution, and choice of the integrated water vapour transport thresholds. The uncertainties in a single detection method and data parameters may be as large as uncertainties across AR detection methodologies.
In this project, the selected student will use the satellite-based data obtained from the National Snow and Ice Data Center (NSIDC) to give an overall comparison of the sea ice variations in Arctic and Antarctic during the recent decades.
The proposed project involves generalising FourierFlows.jl so that it can run both on CPUs and on GPUs effortlessly. Running simulations on GPUs will enable up to 100 or even 200-times speedups.
Scott Wales shares some tips that will make jumping between different computers a bit less of a hassle.
