Thesis Title

Australian East Coast Lows and Norwegian Polar Lows


Rebecca completed a Bachelor of Arts/Bachelor of Science at Monash in 2014 and is now doing honours part-time, scheduled to finish at the end of 2016. Her project is comparing the dynamics of Australian East Coast Lows (ECLs) with the extensively researched Northern Hemisphere Polar Low. The aim is to identify whether reverse shear is involved in ECL formation, and if so, what consequences this has for cyclone characteristics and classification.
