ARC funds new centre.

After an incredible amount of preparation and a nail-biting wait this year, we received the great news from the Australian Research Council  that we have seven years of funding for the ARC Centre of Excellence for Climate Extremes. The Centre will officially open its doors in mid 2017 creating a year of overlap as the current Centre winds down. 
The new Centre will welcome new national and international partners, include a research brief that will also examine impacts and welcome new chief investigators and associate investigators. It will also bring some interesting challenges for the 12 months that our two centres run in parallel.  

Centre Director Report
We now know we have a new ARC Centre of Excellence for Climate Extremes. Andy looks at our research focus, new partners and the preparation for our start date in 2017. Read more.
Centre Manager Report
Stephen Gray talks about the challenges of the new Centre of Excellence and reports on the Coral Triangle Initiative conference where he was an invited speaker. Read more
Graduate Director Report
It may have been a school about tropical climate but this year's winter school, which welcomed five international students, was held over a period that included the coldest June day since 1998. Read more.
Media Manager Report
Our research briefs proved to be a hit on social media. In broader news, changes at the ABC following more cuts to the national broadcaster may open opportunities for us via The Conversation. Read more

HPSC Fall School 2016

October 10-14.
The Centre for High-Performance Scientific Computing in Terrestrial Systems invites young scientists (Master or PhD students, PostDocs) to participate in the HPSC TerrSys' Fall School 2016.
The objective of this applied course is to provide the theoretical and technical context of terrestrial modeling in high-performance scientific computing (HPSC) environments utilizing stand-alone and coupled hydrologic, land surface and atmospheric models. Utilizing the Terrestrial Systems Modeling Platform (TerrSysMP), the course will take a complete tour of terrestrial modeling and HPSC in connection with real-world observations and data assimilation.
Location: Bonn, Germany.

Climate challenges and solutions under the 2C target

October 19-20.
The 2016 Annual Conference of the Italian Society for Climate Sciences (SISC), entitled “Climate challenges and solutions under the 2°C target”,  it aims to foster the scientific debate among scientists, policy and decision makers (Italians and foreigners), NGOs members and other stakeholders whose activities are focused on climate change, as well as its relationships with the environment and socio-economic systems, opportunities and solutions helping in respecting the recent Paris Agreement.
Location: Cagliari, Italy.

Bridging the gap between 210Pb and radiocarbon age dating

October 21-23.
The workshop aims to present to the paleocommunity the latest achievements in lake and peat geochronology for the Anthropocene, especially on combining 210Pb dates with traditional and bomb-pulse 14C dates.
Location: Toulouse, France.

STATMOS Workshop on Climate and Weather Extremes

October 23-25.
This workshop will serve two complementary purposes. The first is to introduce graduate students, as well as others wishing to enter into the area of extreme value analysis, to the techniques and challenges that are unique to studying rare events. The second is to provide a venue for statisticians and atmospheric and climate scientists to share ideas and facilitate collaboration aimed at understanding rare, high-impact climate and weather events.
Location: Philadelphia, US.
