For anyone who has an interest in climate variability and the new tools.
Join the Bureau of Meteorology’s (BoM) Debbie Hudson as she outlines the development and introduction of new climate extreme outlooks.
The tools indicate the chance of unusually warm/cool and dry/wet conditions for the weeks, months and seasons ahead.
The outlooks draw on the Bureau’s upgraded climate model the Australian Community Climate Earth-System Simulator – Seasonal (ACCESS-S), putting them at the cutting edge of global seasonal forecasts.
The extreme climate tools have been developed as part of the Forewarned is Forearmed (FWFA) project. The five-year project (2017–2022) is supported by funding from the Australian Government Department of Agriculture, Water and the Environment as part of its Rural R&D for Profit program, in partnership with 14 project partners including SRA. The project is managed by Meat & Livestock Australia. SRA acknowledges co-funding from the Queensland Department of Agriculture and Fisheries for this research activity.
