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.
We can expect more intense and frequent El Niño and La Niña events.
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.
Climate and tech experts come together to lower barriers with Earth Virtualization Engines (EVE).
Ocean models are important because the ocean acts as a buffer for climate change. It does this by absorbing heat and carbon dioxide associated with human activities. Ocean models are a useful tool to study the ocean and to understand how it is changing. Understanding ocean circulation around Antarctica is critical to understanding global sea level rise and the 3-dimensional circulation of the global ocean. Unfortunately, observations of this very remote region are limited. Ocean models are therefore a crucial tool... View Article
A Weather Forecast Model is used to forecast the weather of tomorrow, or a few days into the future. The model uses detailed information from satellites, surface observations, aircraft and ships to produce the best possible knowledge of the atmosphere, ocean and land. These observations are brought together in the form of an initial state for the model and this initial state is evolved forward in time on a large computer system for a number of days. One of the...
