The ARC Centre of Excellence for Climate Extremes reduces Australia’s economic, social and environmental vulnerability to climate extremes.
We are an international research consortium of five Australian universities and a network of outstanding national and international partner organisations supported by the Australian Research Council.
We lead vital climate science and predictions, train climate science leaders and prepare Australia for future climate extremes.
Climate extremes are high impact events that seriously affect natural and human systems. Our research programs investigate these events.
