This project seeks to improve Australia’s ability to anticipate, analyse and investigate critical meteorological threats.
Severe weather events caused by climate change present a serious issue for Australia. A sparse distribution of atmospheric sensors limits our ability to predict these events, which include storms, fires, floods, droughts and cyclones.
This project will seek to address this issue by developing methods to integrate data from Global Navigation Satellite Systems (GNSS) and Low Earth Orbiting (LEO) satellites with advanced meteorological observations.
The objectives of the project are:
This research will significantly upgrade Australia’s meteorological services and contribute to the global community.
