Andrew Marshall

Senior Research Scientist

Current work and responsibilities

Subseasonal to interannual variability of the atmosphere-ocean climate system and its role in weather and climate prediction, with particular specialisation in drivers of global weather and climate variability and extremes including:

  • - Madden-Julian Oscillation
  • - El Niño Southern Oscillation
  • - Quasi-Biennial Oscillation
  • - Indian Ocean Dipole
  • - Annular Modes
  • - Blocking
  • - Monsoons
  • - Stratospheric Sudden Warmings

Leadership of Bureau project work on ACCESS-S development, marine and terrestrial heatwaves, and prediction skill in POAMA.

Development of realtime trial forecast products for research use and display on the POAMA website:

President of the Australian Meteorological and Oceanographic Society (AMOS).
