NESP Earth Systems and Climate Change Hub
The Earth Systems and Climate Change Hub is a partnership between CSIRO, the Bureau of Meteorology and five universities, funded by the Australian government’s National Environmental Science Program. The role of the ESCC Hub is to ensure that Australia’s policies and management decisions are effectively informed by Earth systems and climate change science, now and into the future.
More information on research in the ESCC Hub on weather extremes and disaster risk management is available at www.nespclimate.com.au/extremes-and-disaster-risk-management.
Bureau of Meteorology
The Bureau of Meteorology plays an important role in monitoring, analysing and communicating observed changes in Australia’s climate. Climate change can have a significant influence on the frequency, magnitude and impact of some types of extreme weather events. Observations and climate modelling paint a consistent picture of ongoing, long-term climate change interacting with underlying natural variability. Projecting the occurrence and severity of future extreme events is a significant scientific challenge, as well as a very important one for future climate adaptation.
CSIRO Climate Science Centre
The CSIRO Climate Science Centre is a research program of about 100 staff working in CSIRO Oceans and Atmosphere. The Centre brings together the core of CSIRO’s capability in climate modelling and observations of the atmosphere and ocean. The mission of the Centre is to deliver the climate knowledge Australia needs to inform an effective national response to the challenges of a variable and changing climate.
UNSW Climate Change Research Centre
UNSW CCRC is a multi-disciplinary research centre comprising one of the largest university research facilities of its kind in Australia, administered within the Faculty of Science. CCRC houses research expertise in the key areas of Earth’s climate: atmospheric, oceanic and terrestrial processes. We apply basic scientific principles to pressing questions on climate dynamics, global climate change, and extremes of weather and climate.
