Version 1 of the Aus400 dataset has been released for community use. This dataset is from a simulation using a regional version (v11.4) of the Met Office unified model (the atmosphere component of The Australian Community Climate and Earth System Simulator, ACCESS) with 400m grid spacing over all of Australia.

Two new ACCESS models have been released (ACCESS-CM2, ACCESS-ESM1.5), the Aus400 dataset has been published, the ERA5 collection is being transferred to NCI and there is now a new quick process to book meetings with our CMS team.
It has been an unprecedented year in academia in 2020, a year where many people have been doing it tough in particular those of you in Victoria. The impact of COVID will take a long time to be fully realized of course, with impacts on our students, researchers, administration and technical teams that we could not anticipate.
This project will examine whether ACCESS-S1 model can replicate the observed seasonal pattern of extreme rainfall timing in Australia, and the relationship with large-scale drivers.
CLEX researchers evaluated an updated version of CABLE climate model within a WRF physics ensemble over the CORDEX AustralAsia domain. Results were strongly dependent on the region of interest.
This was PhD student Charuni Pathmeswaran's first CLEX Winter School. It was an intense and challenging week, but it also gave her an opportunity to explore Melbourne. By week's end Charuni was motivated and had added a range of new skills she will apply to her research.
This release is to advise the community that an ACCESS Oversight Committee has been formed initially comprising Christian Jakob, Rachel Law, Helen Cleugh, Andy Pitman, Tony Hirst, Peter May, David Karoly and Ben Evans. Terms of reference have been agreed to by the group and can be found at the end of this document.
The CMS team reports on a range of updates to ACCESS, NU-WRF (CABLE coupled to WRF), CMIP6 data, ERA5 datasets and more.
Scott Wales (CLEX CMS) gives an overview of how to run ACCESS 2 and the Unified Model with the Rose/Cylc interface.
By employing an atmosphere-only version of ACCESS, CLEX researchers generated multiple sea surface temperature patterns of the same El Nino and La Nina events, and assessed how this influenced heatwaves over various Australian regions.
