This year's theme will be 'Towards seamless science and services'. We are bringing together experts to discuss the latest science and thinking to support seamless weather and climate services that meet increasingly sophisticated user needs.
The growing likelihood of high impact weather events affecting Australian society, government, industry and the natural environment, such as those resulting in the 2019–20 Black Summer fires and the 2021–22 floods, brings an urgent need to look at measures to reduce the risks and impact of natural hazards.
The vision of the Bureau and its partners is to provide seamless and targeted information and services, from past observations to multi-decadal climate projections, to help inform better preparation for, response to and recovery from high impact weather events. In this context, 'seamless' refers to the integration and consistency of data, models, products, services and insights that enable timely and informed decisions by customers everywhere.
The workshop will include in-person and hybrid sessions. Topics will cover:
