A good process level understanding is required to decode observed past climate changes and increase confidence in projected future climate changes.  A lack of good knowledge about the vertical mixing of water vapour due to a variety of processes has recently been identified as one of the stumbling blocks in our progress.

In this project, we seek to utilise 40 years of observations of water vapour profiles from the global radiosonde network to improve our process level understanding of water vapour mixing.

The applicant is expected to know the basics of atmospheric physics and statistics. Some knowledge of data processing tools will be an advantage.
