Radar Rainfall Studies
Honours projects: Scanning weather radars use empirical relationships to calculate rainfall rates from the measured returned power. Depending on student’s interest various projects using a combinations of systems is possible. These could include sensor fusion, radar deployment, comparison techniques, validation with Bureau of Meteorology’s computational models, etc.
Transient Weather Events
Honours project: Integration of data from multiple instruments to determine the origins of recurring and transient weather events in the Adelaide area.
Modelling the Aussie Rules Football Kick
Honours project: This project will look at the function of a human leg when kicking an Australian Rules Football. Motion capture data is available, and will be used in conjunction with OpenSim, an open source musculoskeletal model and dynamical simulator.
