The 2021 Bureau of Meteorology Annual research and development workshop will be held online from the 8th – 11th of November.
From the South Pole and the southern oceans through cities, farmland and deserts to the tropical rainforests, the Bureau of Meteorology provides valuable services for a vast range of climates. Each climate zone comes with forecasting challenges: from predicting sea ice coverage to preparing communities for extreme weather events, drought, flood, fire, cyclone and hail.
The Bureau's vision is to provide seamless and targeted services across all time scales from past observations to multi-decadal climate projections. Delivering on that vision, through a range of products that meet our customers' diverse needs requires national partnerships with industries and academia, and international collaborations across multi disciplinary science.
One year into the 10 year R&D Plan, this workshop will celebrate the research and innovation and the partnerships that enable us to provide:
The workshop aims to bring together experts from across these fields to discuss the latest scientific innovations and how we can work together to provide the Australian and international community with improved services and decision-making capabilities, resulting in greater impact and value. The workshop is open to all and attendees are invited to contribute to the poster session. Talks will be solicited from Australian and international experts across the range of disciplines. There will be prizes awarded to three poster presenters.
A program for the workshop is now available. Please check back in the next few weeks as we will add a book of abstracts.
