    Project Description

    The day-of-the-week variability in meteorological parameters contains key information regarding human
    impact on climate. The project will quantify the nature of this variability at a large number of locations across
    the Australian continent and its range of climate zones. Investigation of this is significant in that it will provide
    an integrated, little-explored window on the anthropogenic influences on the atmosphere, and reveal insights
    which would be difficult to obtain by other means. The project outcomes will include highlighting and
    quantifying, in the Australian context, the physics behind the variation and point to the roles of, in particular,
    the effect of human waste heat and atmospheric aerosols.
