High resolution reanalysis icon

Atmospheric high-resolution regional reanalysis for Australia

Regional reanalysis covering the Australian continent, and the surrounding region including parts of southeast Asia, New Zealand, and south to the ice edge of the Antarctic continent.

NRM icon

Climate Change in Australia (CCiA) - the NRM project

Providing climate change projections for Australia based on the most recent set of internationally co-ordinated modelling experiments (CMIP5).

CWSlab icon

Climate and Weather Science Virtual Laboratory

Providing a national platform for researchers and government agencies to simulate, analyse and predict climate and weather phenomena.

CMIP icon

Coupled Model Intercomparison Project (CMIP) data processing and analysis

Providing information, guidelines and links about the local replica of CMIP3 and CMIP5 (and soon CMIP6) data.

El Nino Indices icon

El Niño Indices

Indices for different types of El Niño for the period 1854 to present

Evidence Targeted Automation icon

Evidence Targeted Automation (ETA)

The ETA project is developing an automated forecast system, with evidence to inform its use, ensuring that quality weather forecasts are provided in an efficient manner with an optimal mix of human and automated processes.

FWFA icon

Forewarned is Forearmed (FWFA): managing the impacts of extreme climate events

Understanding, improving and developing forecasts of climate extremes on multi-week to seasonal timescales for the agricultural sector.

HIWC icon

High Ice Water Content Project (HIWC)

Conducting aircraft research to characterize ice crystal icing microphysics and contribute to updating the civil aviation regulations.

HIWC icon

Impact Forecasting

A pilot project to predict the impacts of East Coast Lows on the built environment.

NACP icon

Northern Australia Climate Program (NACP)

Understanding, improving and developing multi-week to multi-year forecasts for Northern Australia's red meat industry.

NESP icon

NESP Earth System and Climate Change Hub (ESCC)

ESCC Hub is a CSIRO-BOM-University driven science program funded by the Department of the Environment and Energy.

Radar Research icon

Research radar investigations of convection

Developing advanced radar post-processing techniques to better understand convective-scale processes and improve their representation in models.

SIPN South icon

Sea Ice Prediction Network South (SIPN South)

The SIPN-South Project is driven by the quest to test the ability of current prediction systems to forecast the seasonal evolution of circumpolar and regional Antarctic sea ice conditions.

Southern Ocean cloud icon

Southern Ocean cloud-aerosol-radiation-precipitation interactions

Understanding cloud-aerosol-radiation-precipitation interactions over the Southern Ocean to improve climate models and future climate predictions.

vicci icon

The Victorian Climate Initiative (VicCI)

The Victorian Climate Initiative (VicCI) was a regional climate initiative launched in May 2013 by the Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning (DELWP), the Bureau of Meteorology and CSIRO.
