This study aims to evaluate the air temperature data crowdsourced from such sensing units, Netatmo’ citizen weather stations (CWS), used at multiple locations around Sydney area and analyse its application for monitoring the urban climate in this region.

In this project, the selected student will develop a numerical algorithm to generate a spatial map of Antarctic ice algal biomass using Machine Learning.
In this project we will look at one of the two following questions: Do marine heatwaves occur preferentially in certain seasons, and if so why? Do marine heatwaves produce a consistent response in ocean primary production?
This student project will focus on spatially correlated events in Australia that occurred in the past 30 to 40 years. Using observations over this time period the student will catalogue past compound events; assess possible trends in their occurrence; check for preferred spatial correlation patterns; and assess if these were accurately reproduced in reanalysis products (e.g. BARRA, ERA-5 and/or ERA-Interim).
This student project will determine the probability of a drought being terminated by an extreme precipitation event to assess the risk of drought-induced flooding. For this the student will assess observations, reanalysis data and results from a large climate model ensemble.
We are seeking a summer student to help understand the asymmetric and often surprising behaviour of the ocean in response to rapid warming and cooling to better understand the ocean's role in climate change.
This project defines a new PV that naturally generalizes the 1942 PV to multicomponent fluids such as these. We will assess the quality of its conservation law in both oceanographic and atmospheric datasets, comparing against those for previous definitions of PV.
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.
Project: To investigate rapid shallow-water/coastal marine cooling events characterised by sudden transitions from marine heatwave to marine cold spell conditions, and the risk likelihood to vulnerable fish species.
This project aims to learn more about the 1888 Centennial Drought using palaeoclimate information, documentary records, station based data and gridded datasets.
