BOM01: Effects of compound hot and dry events on agricultural production in australia

August 23, 2021 8:24 am Published by Comments Off on BOM01: Effects of compound hot and dry events on agricultural production in australia

The aim of this project is to investigate the effect of compound hot and dry events on agricultural production in Australia, and to assess the predictability of yield losses due to compound events using seasonal climate and hydrological forecasts. The outcome of the project may inform the development of seasonal forecasts of hydro-climatic risk indicators for agricultural production in Australia.

Forecasting El Niño Southern Oscillation (ENSO) events, and anticipating how they may change with global warming remains a significant challenge for climate researchers. An ENSO complexity workshop held in November 2017 produced a follow-up paper summarising what we know about ENSO and its predictability.

UNSW15: Does the frequency, intensity or duration of heatwaves and droughts affect how people vote in elections?

August 14, 2018 6:27 pm Published by Comments Off on UNSW15: Does the frequency, intensity or duration of heatwaves and droughts affect how people vote in elections?

Using France as a case study, this project aims to create a climatology of heatwaves and droughts to investigate possible connections with voting patterns. The ultimate goal would be to help predict voting patterns in the future and to see whether the techniques could be applied more widely to other countries.
