The relationship between extreme rainfall and Australian drought 

Supervisor: Dr Ailie Gallant
Field of Study:
Climate Science

What's more important drought makers or drought breakers? The importance of extreme rainfall to drought.
This project will look at the reliance of a state of drought on extreme rainfall events. The project will investigate the contribution of extreme rainfall to seasonal and annual rainfall totals and will examine how extreme rainfall changes during periods of severe drought.

2017-2019 NSW drought, what caused its persistence?

Supervisor: Dr Ailie Gallant
Field of Study:
Climate Science

Extreme rainfall and the 2017-2019 NSW drought. This project examines the persistence of the NSW drought from 2017-2019 and examines the role of the lack of extreme rainfall in causing the drought to persist over a number of years.

Mediums for the effective communication of climate science

Supervisor: Dr Ailie Gallant
Field of Study:
Geography, Science Communications
Collaborating Organisation: Monash Climate Change Communications Research Hub

Audial versus visual climate information, is there a difference for effective climate change communication?
Climate information is usually communicated to the general public visually, via plots and graphs. However, this is not the only way it needs to be communicated. This project investigates how receptive audiences are to climate information that is communicated audially, rather than visually.
