Biography

Mark's research focuses on the land surface and its interaction with the atmosphere. Specifically his interests include using land models in conjunction with in-situ and remotely sensed measurements to study the impact of land processes on weather and climate, the development of land models focusing on improving the representation of the various physical processes, and the impact on climate due to both natural and anthropogenic changes in the land surface.  He has recently identified regions in Australia where groundwater has a significant impact on climate through the use of models and remotely sensed data.  Currently his work is focused on incorporating subsurface soil moisture processes into CABLE to assess groundwater impacts on climate extremes.
