The ARC Centre of Excellence for Climate Extremes (CLEX) is primarily funded by the Australian Research Council (ARC). It brings together five Australian universities and a suite of outstanding national and international Partner Organisations. The establishment of the Centre – the first of its kind globally – marks a shift from investigating climate averages to a specific focus on the process-level understanding that explains the behaviour of climate extremes that directly affect Australian natural and economic systems. With this increased evidence-based understanding as our foundation, the Centre will improve our capability to predict climate extremes with the goal of reducing our national vulnerability.
