In 2021, the Knowledge Brokerage Team has hit the ground running with a paper in ECR, Climate Classrooms at AMOS, a new CLEX prize for engagement, and an increasing number of external links to new and old stakeholders.

Multiple ARC Centres of Excellence came together to produce short videos about their researchers under the title Q&ARC. This is the CLEX version featuring Rishav Goyal, Stacey Hitchcock, Andy Hogg, and Nina Ridder.
While the Extremes Rainfall RP has found itself in challenging times as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, they have still found moments to celebrate and have been delighted by the enormous range of extraordinary research.
In May, Columbia University hosted the Workshop on Correlated Extreme Events. A total of 175 participants attended the mix of presentations, posters and discussions evolving around the topic of correlated extremes.
This student project will focus on spatially correlated events in Australia that occurred in the past 30 to 40 years. Using observations over this time period the student will catalogue past compound events; assess possible trends in their occurrence; check for preferred spatial correlation patterns; and assess if these were accurately reproduced in reanalysis products (e.g. BARRA, ERA-5 and/or ERA-Interim).
This student project will determine the probability of a drought being terminated by an extreme precipitation event to assess the risk of drought-induced flooding. For this the student will assess observations, reanalysis data and results from a large climate model ensemble.
