The largest rivers on Earth are not on the ground, but in the sky. Our new study, published in Environmental Research Letters, showed that nine out of ten of the most expensive floods in New Zealand (2007-2017) occurred during an Atmospheric River event, and seven to all ten of the top ten most extreme rainfall events at eleven different locations occurred during Atmospheric Rivers.
CLEX researchers have developed Australia’s longest daily temperature record, identifying a decrease in cold extremes and an increase in heatwaves around Adelaide since 1838.
PhD opportunities are now available to work on projects jointly supervised across the ARC Centre of Excellence for Climate Extremes (CLEX) and Bureau of Meteorology. Candidates will be enrolled in one of the CLEX universities and spend significant time at the Bureau of Meteorology. This will allow the student to experience both the University academic and the publicly funded research agency environment.
Luis Clemente Lopez Bravo attended his first AMOS meeting and took the opportunity to meet some Western Australian collaborators. It's an experience he highly recommends for new students.
A known weakness of the Ensemble Kalman filter approach is that its ability to provide state estimates that closely match densely distributed observations is very limited. This paper describes a computationally inexpensive innovative variation on the technique that greatly ameliorates this difficulty.

This project analyzes satellite images and other observational data to study two-way interactions between convection and tropospheric waves. In particular, it investigates how these interactions influence patterns of convection and clouds. Numerical experiments in the form of high-resolution simulations are designed to support the results.
The day will celebrate Women of Mathematics through a range of activities, including a networking lunch, a panel discussion, research talks, and an official opening of the exhibit “Women of Mathematics throughout Europe” at the University of Melbourne. The event is funded in part by the Georgina Sweet Award of Prof Kate Smith-Miles, as part of her Australian Laureate Fellowship. Everybody is most welcome. Please register your attendance, here.
Join us for a presentation and panel discussion on ‘The Melbourne region Healthy Waterways Strategy’ as part of the University of Melbourne’s Water Security Series. As Melbourne’s population grows and climate change impacts increase, the waterways of the region will be put under greater stress. Efforts to improve water quality, ecologic function and the amenity value of the waterways will need to be increased. The recently completed Melbourne region Healthy Waterways Strategy has established a new vision for the health... View Article
