Thesis Title

The influences on Australian east coast lows in present and future climates


Acacia is interested in rainfall patterns on the east coast, and how they differ from the rest of Australia. In particular, she's interested in local rainfall influences such as East Coast Lows and easterly windflow, and how they interact with the major climate drivers. By understanding this, she hopes to improve our ability to understand and predict changes in east coast rainfall, both on the seasonal timescale and longer term changes.
