Variability in urban land-use results in microclimatic variability across a city that is not picked up by government weather station networks. Crowdsourced weather stations can fill these gaps.

CLEX has introduced a new engagement prize for students and early career researchers on fixed contracts with the winner announced at the next annual workshop. The prize is for all forms of engagement but engagement outside the university sector and beyond our usual stakeholders will be considered particularly highly.
El Niño effects are communicated to the Indian Ocean via both large‐scale atmospheric circulation changes over the southern tropical ocean basin and via disturbances to sea‐levels along the coast of Western Australia. CLEX researchers investigated these remote ENSO influences in a state‐of‐the‐art climate model.
Research on the Antarctic stratospheric polar vortex is important for Australia’s seasonal forecastsApril 7, 2020 2:51 pm Comments Off on Research on the Antarctic stratospheric polar vortex is important for Australia’s seasonal forecasts
Research has established a link between Antarctic stratospheric winds and an increased risk of weather conducive to bushfires from late spring to early summer. Further research on the relationship between winds and ozone in the Antarctic stratosphere could improve seasonal forecasts for Australia.
NESP Earth Systems and Climate Change hub and CLEX have been working closely with the finance industry to assist it in understanding climate risks. The work has ranged from presentations through to catastrophe modelling for key industries.
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.
The energy of vortices in the Southern Ocean has increased over the past two decades due to an increase in the mean amplitude of the vortices rather than an increase in their number.
This paper documents the efforts of the international weather data rescue initiative ACRE, the International Surface Temperature Initiative and researchers that took part in workshops held in Bern, Switzerland, in June 2018 to rescue and digitize meteorological measurements taken prior to 1850 from around the world.
DELWP’s Hydrology and Climate Science Team would like to invite you to the: Water and Climate Science Day Research presentations from the Victorian Water and Climate Initiative Tuesday October 29th 10:00am – 4:00pm Melbourne Museum This is a unique opportunity to hear from leading researches on the impact of climate and climate change on Victoria’s water resources. Speakers from CSIRO, BOM and the University of Melbourne will be addressing some of the big questions! What can palaeoclimate reconstructions tell us about... View Article
In this study, CLEX researchers use two years of measurements from a flux mooring combined with satellite data and model outputs to understand the seasonal changes in air‐sea fluxes and the role of ocean currents in controlling ocean surface temperatures in the southeast Indian Ocean.
