This study answers the questions: how different is the meteorology of heatwaves in NSW from those in Victoria, and how representative were the heatwaves of 2017 of previous heatwaves in NSW?

UNSW7: Assessing spatial variability in Sydney’s urban climate and air quality

August 14, 2018 5:22 pm Published by Comments Off on UNSW7: Assessing spatial variability in Sydney’s urban climate and air quality

The Schools Weather and Air Quality (SWAQ) network is placing instruments in Sydney schools to fill gaps in meteorological and air quality observational sites (www.swaq.org.au). This project will contribute to the development of the SWAQ network and assess the influences of spatial variability in  Sydney's urban climate and air quality.
