Variability in urban land-use results in microclimatic variability across a city that is not picked up by government weather station networks. Crowdsourced weather stations can fill these gaps.

The modelling program has now settled in with weekly MOM/COSIMA meetings while working with other research programs on projects that will continue to improve our models and the way we use them in our research. This work has extended to industry and peer network stakeholders.
Julie Potgieter was looking for a better way to explore potential careers when an e-mail came through about working on a climate-related research project for undergraduate students. She jumped at the opportunity and was fortunate enough to be accepted into the program.
This research uses Sydney, Australia’s largest city, as a test case for our new configuration of the Weather and Research Forecasting model run at a very high resolution of 800 m with a new urban classification scheme that describes the complexity of Sydney’s built environment.
Research by Annette Hirsch into heatwaves over Sydney has been turned into a spectacular animation by Drew Whitehouse from NCI Vizlab.
CLEX researchers and colleagues quantified the air quality impact of the Black Summer bushfires of 2019/20 and COVID-19 in the south-eastern states of Victoria and New South Wales (NSW) using a meteorological normalisation approach.

Spring Workshops Data and information for a changing climate – Improving future natural hazard data for infrastructure, communities and services Do you use climate data and information in projects or assessments and need better access, products or services? Do you need climate data products and maps for evidence-based decision-making and want to know whether the right information is available? Do you need to communicate or educate on future climate or natural hazards information and require straightforward access to relevant... View Article
This study answers the questions: how different is the meteorology of heatwaves in NSW from those in Victoria, and how representative were the heatwaves of 2017 of previous heatwaves in NSW?
Schools Weather and Air Quality (SWAQ) is a citizen science project funded by the Australian Government’s Department of Industry, Innovation and Science as part of its Inspiring Australia - Citizen Engagement Program.
The Schools Weather and Air Quality (SWAQ) network is placing instruments in Sydney schools to fill gaps in meteorological and air quality observational sites (www.swaq.org.au). This project will contribute to the development of the SWAQ network and assess the influences of spatial variability in Sydney's urban climate and air quality.
