One-dimensional stochastic initiation of rainfall

Project Supervisor:
Prof Robert Kerr, Mathematics/Engineering
Title: "One-dimensional stochastic initiation of rainfall"
The project would be to take an existing one-dimensional shallow water equation model with
bottom topography, add temperature and moisture, and then apply stochastic forcing to
replicate how rainfall can be initiated by the interaction of discrete variations in the
topography. This could be applicable to desert floors such as in Arizona and irregular
coastlines, in the case of the British Isles.
The goal would be to guide the development of new parameterisations using stochastic
differential equations that could be used in mesoscale weather prediction codes.
