This project will apply a state of the art, hierarchical Bayesian modelling framework to determine how past climatic conditions influence current responses to high CO2concentrations. The project will use data from a new, specially-designed experiment, as well as results from past Free-Air Carbon dioxide Enrichment (FACE) and Open-top chamber (OTC) experiments, to close this knowledge gap.

This project will apply state-of-the-art computational fluid dynamics (CFD) simulations of microscale urban flow such as large eddy simulations to develop a 1-D (multi-layer) model of turbulent flow with detailed parameterisation regarding the role of geometry; surface heating and material; and vegetation.

After some well deserved (and in many cases long overdue) summer holidays the Centre has seen a rapid ramp up of research in the last couple of months. Cross research program collaboration has intensified, focussed on improving our modelling systems, using our models to examine key phenomenon and in particularly how we can improve the representation of extreme events.

We can expect more occurrences of extreme weather associated with eastern Pacific El Niño events (the strongest and most destructive of the two types of El Niño events), which will have pronounced implications for the twenty-first century climate, extreme weather and ecosystems.

In this study a very high-resolution simulation of a Hector thunderstorm – a large regularly occurring storm near Darwin – is analysed and the hydrating properties of the overshoots are examined.

Antarctic sea ice extent underwent a rapid decline in the spring of 2016 and is still well below average now. CLEX researchers have tied the decline to natural variability of both the atmosphere and ocean in two articles published in Nature Communications this month.

CLEX Chief Operating Officer Stephen Gray welcomes us all to the first newsletter of the ARC Centre of Excellence for Climate Extremes, celebrates the legacy of ARCCSS and touches on where we are going with open access publications.

Drawing on 5 years of experience as an editor for Geophysical Research Letters, Peter Strutton presented a talk that covered what happens between submission of a manuscript and eventual acceptance or rejection. Specific topics included the importance of cover letters, dealing with rejection, addressing reviewers’ comments and considerations around authorship.
