CLEX researchers find rapidly intensifying hurricanes may become more frequent in a future warmer climate and the speed of this increase in intensity will continue to accelerate as the world's oceans continue to warm.

To better assess the degree of organisation in radar observations CLEX researchers developed the Radar Organisation Metric (ROME). ROME's statistical properties suggest it is able to distinguish between the degree of convective organisation, and it also captures different regimes of the monsoon in Northern Australia.
In March 2019, NCSAC asked CLEX to provide a comprehensive report on the current state of climate processes research in Australia. Co-ordinator Christian Jakobs explains the process and outcomes.
Research brief: New model explores the relationship between humidity, instability, and precipitation in the tropicsNovember 26, 2019 9:57 am Comments Off on Research brief: New model explores the relationship between humidity, instability, and precipitation in the tropics
In this paper, CLEX researchers considered the steady-state response of the atmosphere to an imposed large-scale flow. They found that under these steady-state conditions, humidity increases with the precipitation rate, while the lapse rate (rate of decrease of temperature with height) increases.
In this project, we will investigate the clustering of thunderstorms using satellite observations of rainfall in the tropics. In particular, we will examine the question of whether rainfall in the tropics is becoming more clustered, and what effect this may have on heavy precipitation now and into the future.
