CLEX researchers used data from a wind profiler radar pair at Darwin, Australia, to determine the characteristics of individual up- and downdrafts observed at the site. They found updrafts with 5km vertical heights with extreme rain rates.

A new paper by Martin Jucker and colleagues reveals the choice of a particular convection-resolving model (CRM) has a much larger impact on the results than increasing resolution. It also suggests the behaviour of CRMs is tied to model internals instead of the phenomena they are trying to reproduce.
From November 13-December 17, 2019, Sonny Truong took part in an observational voyage aboard the RV Investigator 30kms off the coast of Darwin. It was a voyage that featured some firsts for this atmospheric scientists and resulted in some great research and a spectacular time-lapse video of a storm forming and dissipating out to sea.
Observational studies over Darwin, Australia, show gravity waves provide a plausible explanation for the patterns of noteworthy variability in mesoscale motions. The findings suggest a two‐way coupling of clouds to their environment
In this study a very high-resolution simulation of a Hector thunderstorm – a large regularly occurring storm near Darwin – is analysed and the hydrating properties of the overshoots are examined.
As the end of his masters degree approaches, Ewan Short is at a career crossroads. He studied meteorology, and his main choice is whether to pursue a career as an operational forecaster with the Bureau of Meteorology, or do a PhD. An internship with the Bureau of Meteorology was a step on the way to making that decision.
