Climate models are the best available tools to investigate and understand possible future climates, including the international Coupled Model Intercomparison Project (CMIP) coordinated by The World Climate Research Programme.
CMIP makes model outputs from global modelling groups available to researchers and decision-makers every 6 to 7 years. The latest suite of outputs, CMIP6, combines the best available information from more than 100 global climate models.
Climate Systems Hub researchers have evaluated CMIP6 models to understand how well they represent ENSO, IOD, and SAM, and their influence on Australian rainfall.
