Centre for Australian Weather and Climate Research
January 16, 2008
3:00 pm: Conversation and Cookies in Room 108 ASB
3:30 pm: Seminar in Room 103 Transportation Building
The talk will comprise of a brief overview of the weather sampled during the TWPICE experiment in the area around Darwin, Northern Australia in late 2005 and early 2006 followed by two examples of some of the science coming from the experiment. Firstly the results of a study attempting to isolate the relative effects of aerosols and thermodynamics on tropical convection using TWPICE data will be discussed, showing clear correspondence between storm system characteristics and thermodynamic settings as well as a possible link to aerosols on storm intensity, although there are some clear thermodynamic influences that could not be separately isolated as well. The second part of the talk will discuss some preliminary analysis of an intense MCS that developed into a deep tropical low.
