Harry Hendon

Senior Principal Research Scientist

Current work and responsibilities

I lead the Climate Processes team in the Climate Change and Variability Program. This includes strong interactions with the research teams working on climate variability, climate extremes, and coupled modelling for seasonal prediction, as well as internal and external stakeholders. Examples of external stakeholders are the Managing Climate Variability program and Department of Environment, Land, Water, and Planning.

Our experimental prediction products are on display here.

In 2015, I became a Fellow of the American Meteorological Society and in 2016 I became a Fellow of the American Geophysical Union.
