As the year draws to a close and we pause to look back over 2018, it’s not surprising that with the ending of the ARC Centre of Excellence for Climate System Science (ARCCSS) on June 30 and the ARC Centre of Excellence for Climate Extremes (CLEX) building up a head of steam after its first full year, we have packed a lot into the past 12 months.
