Climate models are providing a better understanding of how heat stress will evolve in 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."
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.
By bringing together researchers focussed on the large-scale modes of climate variability with researchers investigating weather and land surface processes, our goal is to improve the regional predictions of how rainfall extremes will change in the future.
The difference in results between the high-skill and low-skill CMIP6 models highlights an urgent need to examine why some models work well and some don’t, and, ultimately, improve those with weaknesses.
