Morwenna Griffiths

Research Scientist

Current work and responsibilities

Morwenna works within the Seasonal Prediction team to support the production of ACCESS-S, and development of new products.

Currently working on producing a calibrated data set for ACCESS-S1. This will be used to drive crop and pasture models as well as heat and fire danger indices. The aim is to have a global data set at the native grid resolution (about 60km for the atmosphere and 25km for the ocean), and a 5km set over the land area of Australia

Once the calibrated data set in complete, it will be used to calculate probability of exceedance products.
