The objective of the project is to use a combination of station-based measurements and reanalyses (e.g. BARRA, ERA-5) to create a climatology of precipitable water for Australia. After creating the dataset, the student will also analyse trends and variability.
This project will investigate the lifecycle of hail storms through the application of a storm-tracking algorithm. Characteristics such as storm size, velocity, and intensity will be examined for severe hail storms and compared to those for non-severe storms.
