The overarching goal of the Colorado State University Convective CLoud Outflows and UpDrafts Experiment (C3LOUD-Ex) was to enhance our understanding of deep convective storm processes and how they are represented in numerical models. Pivotal to the experiment was a novel “Flying Curtain” strategy.

CLEX researchers used data from a wind profiler radar pair at Darwin, Australia, to determine the characteristics of individual up- and downdrafts observed at the site. They found updrafts with 5km vertical heights with extreme rain rates.

Research brief: The rare event that amplified the dry Australian spring of 2019 is unlikely to happen again

An unusual southern stratospheric warming event amplified the conditions that led to the Black Summer bushfires of 2019/20. CLEX researchers explored how frequently these rare warming events may occur with climate change.
