The hub in February

March 1, 2024

For the shortest month of the year the Climate Systems Hub has been busy.

The 30th annual AMOS conference
The 30th annual Atmospheric and Meteorological society’s conference brought together hundreds of climate scientists from across the country. Hub scientists featured heavily across the program. Notably, hub project Synthesis communication and data worked with knowledge brokers to deliver a workshop on co-design and delivering science for impact. Hub scientists also ran a workshop on regional climate downscaling for Australia within the CORDEX framework. Hub knowledge brokers also presented posters Shaping Australia’s climate science research and A collaborative web. 

The hub also sponsored the Indigenous knowledge and early career researcher event to bring together the next generation of climate practitioners.  

Open to the public, the Climate Tipping Points public lecture featured CSIRO and hub scientists Dr Michael Grose and Dr Pep Canadell joined by world leading experts to discuss what global tipping points mean for Australia. Read more in the CSIRO’s workshop report Understanding the risks to Australia from global climate tipping points. 

Congratulations to hub award winners 

Congratulations to Dr Pandora Hope on receiving an AMOS fellowship in recognition of her work with the Bureau of Meteorology and outreach supporting the next generation of scientists.  Dr Andrew King was awarded the Priestley Medal, and the Science Outreach award was awarded to Dr Ailie Gallant. 

International Women in Science Day 
International Women in Science Day this month is a chance to celebrate the hard work of women in science. The hub is proud to consist of dozens of hardworking women who make up the majority of our project leads. Through our early career professional Climate College the hub is working hard to empower the next generation of women in STEM. 

Hub products 

Hub scientists published 2 peer review journal articles and a webinar on Australia’s carbon budget.

Dr Pep Canadell joined CSIRO’s Dan Roseaur in the hub’s first webinar for 2024 Emissions reduction in the boom and bust of Australia’s carbon budget – the challenge and the opportunity. Facilitated by hub Knowledge Broker Ramona Dalla Pozza, they looked at Australia’s carbon budget and what vegetation means for Australia’s carbon sinks. Published at the end of last year, the budget is the most comprehensive assessment of Australian CO₂ sources and sinks covers the decade from 2010 to 2019 and gives an in depth look at Australia’s anthropogenic and natural emissions.
