The Australian State of the Climate 2020 report reveals a picture of long-term climate trends and climate variability. The biennial climate snapshot draws on the latest observations and climate research from the marine, atmospheric and terrestrial monitoring programs at CSIRO and Bureau of Meteorology.
Mathematical models are used to project the Earth’s future under a warming world, but a group of the latest models have included unexpectedly high values for “climate sensitivity”.
In this webinar, ESCC Hub researchers Dr Michael Grose and Sugata Narsey will summarise and highlight the Hub’s analysis and studies of the CMIP6 climate model simulations just released, with a focus on climate projections for Australia.
We’ve improved confidence in projections, particularly rainfall projections; run targeted workshops, presentations and training to better identify user needs and help stakeholders access climate change information; and produced more targeted projection products for stakeholders to use in decision-making.
