Dr. Ailie Gallant - Honours Projects

Rainfall sequencing and organisation during drought

Supervisors: Dr Ailie Gallant, Dr Tess Parker
Field of Study: Climate science, meteorology, drought
Collaborating Organisation: Centre of Excellence for Climate Extremes

Drought is associated with a reduction in rainfall. However, the spatio-temporal characteristics of rainfall changes during drought are not clear. This project will examine changes to temporal sequencing of rainfall during drought (i.e. does it fall over a few days, or many), and the organisation of that rainfall (i.e. clustered or spatially sporadic).
