Research to advance understanding of Australia’s climate.
About this hub
The Climate Systems Hub is providing research to advance the understanding of Australia’s climate, its extremes and associated drivers, including the fundamental drivers of rainfall, drought and bushfires, and inform climate adaptation solutions for Australia.
|NESP funding||$38 million|
|Hub leader||Dr Simon Marsland|
|Hub website||Climate System Hub|
|Approved projects||Climate Systems Hub projects|
The Climate Systems Hub is:
- maintaining Australia’s world-class capability in multidisciplinary Earth-system science and modelling
- advancing understanding of Australia’s climate variability, extremes and associated drivers, including the fundamental drivers of bushfires, drought and rainfall in the Australian region
- developing applied decision-making tools and information to inform policy and programs to prepare Australia to manage emerging risks and opportunities.
The hub is also driving coordinated research across all 4 new hubs under NESP’s ‘climate adaptation’ cross-cutting initiative to support evidence-based decision-making and improve Australia’s climate resilience.
