Severe and High Impact Weather
The ability to understand, predict, forecast and monitor severe and high impact weather is fundamental to understanding the threat posed to communities, and in turn, our ability to provide appropriate warnings in the lead up to such weather.
This cluster of projects led by the Bureau of Meteorology focuses on:
- Improving the scientific understanding of severe weather in Australia, such as cyclones, severe wind, thunderstorms and fire weather;
- Improving the knowledge of how to best predict this severe weather, including model configuration and interpretation;
- Contributing to the post-event analysis and lessons learned from selected severe events that occur during the course of the project;
- Informing the development of numerical weather prediction systems specifically for severe weather.
‘CRC funded projects’ details research conducted by the core, CRC funded, program.
Projects in ‘commissioned research’ detail research the Bushfire and Natural Hazards CRC has, or is, conducting directly for a partner organisation, outside of the core, CRC funded, program. These projects are included on this page as their topic relates to this cluster, and the findings may be of interest.
