New research shows regional climate models consistently provide added value across Australia compared to global climate models. As a result, researchers and policymakers can obtain plausible improvements in future climate projections from the current generation of available RCMs.

The past four months have produced a sequence of impressive papers that should significantly improve the modelling of precipitation and our capacity to better understand how it may change in the future.
The aim of this student project is to investigate the effect of bias correction and downscaling methods on hydrological projections for Australia.
CLEX researchers and colleagues have developed a downscaling methodology using the HiDRUS model that accurately projects future rainfall in 1km grids at six minute intervals. This will be a boon for urban planners who need to build infrastructure to cope with the different future heavy rainfall events that will occur in a changing climate.
