To better assess the degree of organisation in radar observations CLEX researchers developed the Radar Organisation Metric (ROME). ROME's statistical properties suggest it is able to distinguish between the degree of convective organisation, and it also captures different regimes of the monsoon in Northern Australia.

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.
Catastrophic wildfires like the Black Saturday wildfires in 2009 and Canberra Wildfires of 2003, which were so large and dangerous that they generated their own weather systems – including the world’s first filmed fire tornado – are likely to be more frequent in the future as a result of climate change across southeast Australia
This paper investigates the annual cycle in cloud and rainfall measurements over the western equatorial Indian Ocean. While there is a single period of strong rainfall over the region during December-January each year, there are two periods of increased high-top clouds associated with convection.
While the data from Himiwari-8 provides very useful data on clouds at relatively high resolution, researchers need to know if it produced any biases, particularly around cloud-top height and cloud-top temperature, whose roles are critical in shaping Earth’s climate. CLEX researchers and Australian colleagues compared the Himawari-8 data for both of these measures with existing datasets.

Sprigg lecture series: Australia’s tempestuous relationship with wildfire – past, present and future Join Professor Bob Hill and Dr Mika Peace as they present two perspectives on Australia’s relationship with wildfire – the evolution of fire-adapted vegetation, and how complex weather patterns drive fire behaviour in the Australian landscape. Professor Bob Hill is the Director of the University of Adelaide’s Environment Institute. He has PhD and DSc degrees from the University of Adelaide and has held academic positions at James Cook University,... View Article

Lucy Manne, (CEO of 350.org). Climate Change: A Very Short Arc that Bends towards Justice? 2019 Wednesday Lectures hosted by Raimond Gaita Political inaction in Australia and around the world means that we now have an alarmingly short window in which to act in order to mitigate and adapt to the climate crisis. As the urgency to increases, so does the risk that the solutions we adopt reinforce or even create systems of oppression and injustice. This lecture will examine the... View Article
