The science behind climate extremes is fascinating and diverse.
Our experts love to share their work with the media, websites like The Conversation and here at climateextremes.org.au – here’s some of their latest articles.

Research reveals who’s been hit hardest by global warming in their lifetime – and the answer may surprise you
Humanity will continue to warm the planet until we reach global net-zero emissions.
“We want to get to a point where the research is applied to effect change in how climate risk is managed.”
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.
“Current global emission reduction policies put us on track for 2.7°C warming by the end of the century.”
