An analysis of new climate model projections by Australian researchers from the ARC Centre of Excellence for Climate Extremes shows southwestern Australia and parts of southern Australia will see longer and more intense droughts due to a lack of rainfall caused by climate change.

A group of international researchers using CMIP6 models to determine how heavy precipitation events will alter with climate change. The northern hemisphere in particular showed a strong warming signal for increased precipitation.
Research brief: Current Climate Models do not Project a More Persistent Central European CirculationMay 18, 2020 11:25 am Comments Off on Research brief: Current Climate Models do not Project a More Persistent Central European Circulation
Central Europe has recently experienced extreme weather events, so researchers investigated whether this was the result of a weakening jet stream and changes to atmospheric circulation.
Observational studies over Darwin, Australia, show gravity waves provide a plausible explanation for the patterns of noteworthy variability in mesoscale motions. The findings suggest a two‐way coupling of clouds to their environment
Catastrophic wildfires like the Black Saturday wildfires in 2009 and Canberra Wildfires of 2003, which were so large and dangerous that they generated their own weather systems – including the world’s first filmed fire tornado – are likely to be more frequent in the future as a result of climate change across southeast Australia
CLEX researchers investigate the physics of the Antarctic Circumpolar Current to understand why increased wind stress doesn't lead to a more powerful current. It turns out the ocean floor plays a key role.
This study uses 13 years of weather radar data in Darwin, Australia, to investigate how the structure of convective clouds relates to the environment they are embedded in.
In 2016, Centre of Excellence for Climate Extremes researchers and colleagues measured Southern Ocean INPs for the first time in over four decades. The numbers of these particles were extremely low compared to other oceans and 100 times lower than the previous Southern Ocean measurement program conducted in the 1970s.
Convective parameterizations are widely believed to be essential for realistic simulations of the atmosphere, but are crude in today's weather and climate models. CLEX researchers, report on what happens when a number of these models are run with these schemes simply turned off.
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.
