Monitoring and modelling

Monitoring the observed climate system and maintaining a state-of-science modelling capability is fundamental to maintaining the currency of Australia’s climate science excellence. Building and enhancing the fundamental tools of Earth system modelling is key to understanding changes in the earth system. This includes developing Australia’s leading climate tools, including the ACCESS model, and evaluating modelling methods and outputs. This work can be used to inform policy directions, understand current carbon budgets, and the outcomes of meeting carbon targets through tailored modelling experiments.
