News: Honours projects - Physics
Honours projects: Study honours in physics and help improve the accuracy of cancer treatment planning.
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.
Honours project: Refining satellite detection techniques using a large radar north of Adelaide to develop new ways to measure the amount of plasma in the upper atmosphere and compare the results with other methods.
Honours project: Use of GPS measurements from dual-frequency GPS receivers to study variation in electron density in the ionosphere and atmospheric water vapour.
Honours project: Computational modelling of the trajectories of small objects in orbits around stars enables a better understanding of the evolution of planetary systems and interplanetary dust.
Honours project: Projects with the Pierre Auger Observatory in western Argentina which has been built to detect giant cascades of particles created in our atmosphere by the highest energy particles known in the Universe.
