Research projects

  • We’ve examined historical extreme events and their causes to better understand how, when and where extreme weather events occur. We also assessed the ability of climate models to simulate extreme weather events, and investigated the causes of projected future changes in extremes. We engaged with stakeholders to ensure project products were used to inform management and policy activities.

  • We’ve developed models that we have used to assess the potential of revegetation and conservation activities in Australia to remove carbon from the atmosphere. We have also produce national and global carbon budget data products and have supported Australia’s contribution to the Global Carbon Project.

  • We’ve established the National Centre for Coasts and Climate to work with stakeholders to identify the best ways of addressing climate change impacts in Australian coastal ecosystems. We have investigated how coastal vegetated habitats store carbon, how coastal erosion is changing, and have trialled ecological engineering solutions to enhance coastal protection.
