Project description

Kaempf's research group has recently discovered the existence of short-lived atmospheric cyclones in the South Eastern Tropical Indian Ocean (SETIO). The presence/absence of these cyclones are fundamental in the development of the positive phase of the Indian Ocean Dipole, which influences the monsoonal climate in many countries bordering the Indian Ocean including Australia. The aim of this project is to apply and refine cyclone-tracking algorithms to statistically analyze the properties of SETIO cyclones.

Assumed knowledge

Basic knowledge in the marine sciences and mathematics (and enthusiasm)

Industry involvement

Note: You need to register interest in projects from different supervisors (not a number of projects with the one supervisor).
You must also contact each supervisor directly to discuss both the project details and your suitability to undertake the project.
