As the summer continues many of us are experiencing very hot temperatures. It is important to be prepared for extreme conditions which can lead to heat stress.
Understanding the science around extreme weather attribution and the complex issues associated with it.
Understanding the role of climate change behind costly or deadly impacts allows for mitigation and response systems such as building codes or public health resources to be sufficiently bolstered, particularly as the risk of impacts increases.
Climate models suggest that the rainfall decrease and temperature increase during El Niño will likely intensify in the future.
Understanding the meteorological drivers of the Black Summer fire events using high resolution simulationsAugust 8, 2023 8:30 am Comments Off on Understanding the meteorological drivers of the Black Summer fire events using high resolution simulations
We used an atmospheric model from the Met office in the UK called the unified model to simulate one of the black summer bushfire events.
The presence of groundwater in forested areas reduces rainfall loss in wet periods and maintains soil moisture in dry periods.
This study is an example how models help us to examine and understand how ocean currents behave and how they impact our environment.
There are many types of climate models, and they vary widely in complexity.
Climate models come in different forms and are used to understand the Earth’s future.
The oceans’ biology and chemistry influence the climate because ocean, atmospheric and land processes are all interconnected.
