An opportunity exists at The Australian National University for a highly motivated PhD candidate to extend our current understanding of Australia’s pre-20th century weather and climate extremes such as heatwaves, droughts, and extreme rainfall events using a range of scientific and historical sources.
Datasets compiled during this project will help extend the longest running instrumental climate records in Australia, providing a stronger foundation for assessing recently observed variability and extremes. These records will be used to help improve climate risk assessment needed for future climate change planning and adaption.
