New research finds a significant interaction between the El Niño-Southern Oscillation and Madden-Julian Oscillation, with major implications for Northern Australia.
Wet and dry periods could stick around for longer.
"We want to get to a point where the research is applied to effect change in how climate risk is managed."
The presence of groundwater in forested areas reduces rainfall loss in wet periods and maintains soil moisture in dry periods.
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).
"It is unambiguous that climate is changing due to human activity – specifically the emissions of greenhouse gases. These are increasing the risk of some extreme events.”
We are conducting research to determine if we can forecast changes in the probability of extreme rainfall events associated with atmospheric rivers 2-6 weeks ahead.
