The CLEX node at the University of NSW is offering several PhD scholarships on a competitive basis. Details of how to apply can be found on this page along with some example projects offered by our researchers.
The summer student on this project will make use of recent observations and combine these novel machine learning and image processing techniques to understand the drivers of recent ocean change.
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.
Using novel techniques developed by the supervisory team, the PhD candidate will evaluate the role of diabatic processes in the ENSO cycle, and how they may change in the future, using new observations and state-of-the-art model simulations. This research is critical to improving our ability to project future climate change.
