As part of my Honours year I need to do a research unit. While we won't have an exam, we do have 4 major assessments and two of them are due in the next few weeks - eek. As a result, my focus this week is not so much on climate modelling (which, since you're asking is not going too well thanks - but more on that later) rather on the leaf traits of plants in Jurien Bay. Its a bit of a departure from the work I am doing and I must say its nice to be working on something that I can actually achieve a result from.
As for TAPM and wind modelling, my models are still chronically underestimating wind speeds. This is so very frustrating. To try and figure out where my model is going wrong, I make one small change to the model, run it and then need to wait a day for it to finish before I process the data to see if the change has worked. So far I've had no luck so cross your fingers and toes that tonight's iteration of the model is THE ONE.
