About
Dr James Ricketts

James’ PhD is identifying and relating episodes of apparent abrupt shifts in regional climate in Australia. His research is extending this methodology to global datasets and to modelled futures to better inform risk assessments. James is automating testing for step changes, delineating a suite of statistical tests for exploring individual step changes, and applying these to global temperature, zonal land and ocean records, as well as to climate model equivalents. James’ analysis will then be applied to two-degree grid scale observations and model outputs that are suited to a wide range of physical and biophysical models.

James has written two conference papers as part of the 21st International Congress on Modelling and Simulation held on the Gold Coast and for the 22nd, held in Hobart.

His completed thesis was published in November 2019.
