CSIRO03: Exploring the dynamics of decadal variability and transitions in climate teleconnections

This project will focus on the connection between conceptual climate models and high resolution general circulation models (GCMs). The student will analyse simplified models that represent teleconnection behaviour and calibrate them to reflect the settings of a GCM. The student will also have access to high dimensional GCM output and can compare an ensemble of “real-world” simulations to the behaviour of the conceptual model using statistical methods.

CSIRO02: Analysing long tide gauge records in Australia in conjunction with the 20th Century reanalysis to better understand how extreme events and by association extreme sea level events are changing

Understanding historical changes in extreme sea levels is necessary for the accurate projection of their changes over the next century. This project will look at digitized sea level data, to better understand the causes of extreme sea levels the southern Australian region and how these events vary over the duration of the record.

Errors in identifying the fire scar – the portion of a long-lasting bushfire that is actively burning or smouldering, are the largest errors in forecasting emissions from these events. This project will develop and analyse fire progression tracking using data from the 2019 – 2020 bushfire season.
