The jet stream is a band of strong westerly winds in the upper atmosphere. Shifts in the jet are associated with shifts in the storm tracks, with associated changes in regional weather and rainfall. This project will look at methods to characterise the position and strength of the jet stream in the Southern Hemisphere, with a focus on changes in the Australian region with time.

Research brief: Current Climate Models do not Project a More Persistent Central European CirculationMay 18, 2020 11:25 am Comments Off on Research brief: Current Climate Models do not Project a More Persistent Central European Circulation
Central Europe has recently experienced extreme weather events, so researchers investigated whether this was the result of a weakening jet stream and changes to atmospheric circulation.
A new framework for cyclone jet interaction improve our understanding of how the turbulent atmosphere is organised in coherent motions via the jet stream
