Research brief: Uncertainty of future wheat yield varies with location

November 23, 2020 3:56 pm Published by Comments Off on Research brief: Uncertainty of future wheat yield varies with location

CLEX researchers and colleagues examined the contribution to uncertainty in simulated future changes in crop yields using the change-factor method and an additional, more sophisticated, statistical downscaling method of generating realistic future climate data from climate model output.

Stephen Gallagher (University of Melbourne). From Monsoons to Desert: 50 Million Years of Australian Climate History   Description The 2019 Howitt Lecture – a joint presentation between the Royal Society of Victoria and the Geological Society of Australia (Victoria Division) Geoscience in Australia can be uniquely challenging. The harsh, arid and intense monsoonal climate of our continent generally destroys much evidence of its past activity over millions of years on land. Offshore, however, the story is different. The ocean floor receives and preserves huge... View Article

MON4: The dynamics of the onset of the northern Australian monsoon

August 14, 2018 3:46 pm Published by Comments Off on MON4: The dynamics of the onset of the northern Australian monsoon

In this project, you will investigate the atmospheric dynamics associated with the onset of the monsoon, for example, the influence of mid-latitude and tropical disturbances. You will gain useful and transferable skills in data analysis and programming, as well as an opportunity to contribute to an active area of research in Australian weather and climate science.
