Tropical convection and its contribution to climate variability

Grant number: DP0770381 | Funding period: 2007 - 2009

Completed

Abstract

This research will provide the necessary data to test and improve the representation of tropical convective clouds in weather forecast and climate simulation models. This will lead to more robust estimates of future climate change, and improved prediction of precipitation in the Australian tropics. This project will also provide training to undergraduate and postgraduate students in using modern computer models; such models will be a key component of weather forecasting in the future.
