“Over a lot of places, hail-prone days have decreased, but in some places they have significantly increased."
Machine learning could help us understand the relationship between water vapour transport and the amount of rain that falls at different locations.
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.
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.
Cold fronts can make bushfires worse, a startling consideration for authorities pondering the upcoming bushfire season.
There are two necessary ingredients for extreme rainfall to occur – an abundant supply of moisture and ascending air.
The increasing rainfall trends observed in northwest Australia have significant implications for the region’s ecosystems, communities, and industries.
