The Science-Industry Workshop on Severe Convective Storms
August 3 - August 4
The Science-Industry Workshop on Severe Convective Storms will be held on 3-4 August 2023, at the UNSW Kensington Campus in Sydney.
Sponsored by the ARC Centre of Excellence for Climate Extremes (CLEX), the workshop will bring together scientists and industry colleagues working on severe convective storms across disciplines. We aim to forge deeper connections between science and industry through presentations, open discussion, identification of shared challenges, and future planning. Topics to be presented and discussed include:
- The latest understanding of severe storms in the current climate, including relationships between atmospheric conditions and storm occurrence.
- The latest science on climate change effects on hailstorms, extreme winds, and extreme rainfall associated with thunderstorms.
- Storm climate science in industry: information required and how that information is used.
- Opportunities for exchange: unique data and knowledge that industry can provide.
The workshop organisers are Dr. Tim Raupach (UNSW Sydney), Dr. Joanna Aldridge (Insurance Council of Australia) and Dr. Joshua Soderholm (Bureau of Meteorology).
We warmly invite you to attend this workshop and contribute your expertise!
