Location: UNSW

Time: Summer

Australia is the driest inhabited continent and parts of the country are currently in the grips of a severe drought. Yet we have very little idea how droughts will evolve in the future with a changing climate.

This project will use satellite and flux tower observations to characterise the response of Australian ecosystems to water stress. These data will then be used to evaluate how well the Australian climate model predicts droughts. The successful candidate will obtain skills in programming and analysis of spatial datasets and model outputs.

Requirements: Prior knowledge of programming in R, Python or similar is advantageous.
