Eun-Pa Lim

Research Scientist

Current work and responsibilities

Eun-Pa's research interest is in the variability, predictability and prediction of Australian seasonal climate and associated large-scale oceanic and atmospheric circulations such as El-Nino and the Southern Oscillation, the Indian Ocean Dipole Mode and the Southern Annular Mode. To understand the variability of Australian seasonal climate and mechanisms behind it, she analyses observational data and conducts idealised model experiments. She also works on the verification of the Bureau of Meteorology's new subseasonal to seasonal forecast system, ACCESS-S's forecasts for Australian climate and associated large-scale climate drivers.

Eun-Pa was one of the primary investigators in the South Eastern Australian Climate Initiative (SEACI) and the Victorian Climate Initiative (VicCI).
