The ESCC Hub science webinar series is an opportunity to hear about the science being undertaken in the Hub, directly from the researchers.
The webinars are open to the research community and anyone interested in finding out more about the Hub’s research.
PLEASE NOTE: These are largely technical webinars that assume some understanding of climate science.
Webinars will generally be held on the third Tuesday or Wednesday of the month from 2.30–3.30 pm (AEDT Oct–Mar; AEST Apr–Sep). The webinar will run for an hour, with time allocated for questions.
The webinars are free to attend, but registration is required. You’ll be sent a link and information on how to attend in your registration confirmation email.
