This research uses Sydney, Australia’s largest city, as a test case for our new configuration of the Weather and Research Forecasting model run at a very high resolution of 800 m with a new urban classification scheme that describes the complexity of Sydney’s built environment.

Research by Annette Hirsch into heatwaves over Sydney has been turned into a spectacular animation by Drew Whitehouse from NCI Vizlab.
In this report CMS welcomes Annette Hirsch to the team, alerts users to retracted ERA5 data, continues work on ACCESS-ESM1.5, and looks at changes to NCI processes, and CLEX data management practices and training.
This is a tough and unique time for everyone in CLEX. I had anticipated the pandemic being over by now (note the predictive skill of a modeller) and it is confronting to be writing this while Victoria is in lockdown and world leaders are worried about shower pressure.
Climate change will affect prescribed burning days in the future. Unexpectedly, it is not all bad news, but as the coming century progresses there are definitely changes ahead for our firefighters in Australia when it comes to preparing for a fire season, especially along the east coast of Australia.
After being selected as the inaugural winner of the CLEX Career Development Award for Women and Underrepresented Groups, Annette Hirsch has been learning all about the process of influencing policy.
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.
CLEX researchers found that regions where there is a larger drying trend tend to be more sensitive to land water availability and have more heatwave days. They found that the effect of dry soils before a heatwave varies considerably across Australia.
Since 2016 CMS has helped Centre’s researchers and students publish data using the NCI data services. Here, researchers talk about their own experiences with the publication process of their data and code at NCI and Zenodo.
After a very useful poll, the ECR Committee brought in some great experts who taught them art of time management, how to say no, and how to beat back imposter syndrome.
