What exactly is a one-in-a-100-year weather event? And why do they keep happening so often? 

We invite you to join us for the next digital webinar in the Sci-Fi Series: Climate Extremes, which will explore why extreme weather and climate events are increasing in frequency across the globe, how they compare to past events, and how they might evolve in the future.

Our expert panel will discuss current research into the processes that trigger or enhance these extremes, how scientists are building this understanding into our modelling systems, and how predictions of climate extremes will help us cope with them - both now and into the future. 

Joining the panel:

  • Professor Emma Johnston AO - Dean, UNSW Science
  • Professor Andy Pitman AO- Director, ARC Centre of Excellence for Climate Extremes, UNSW Sydney
  • Professor Moninya Roughen (BSc Hons '98, PhD '02) - Group Leader, Coastal and Regional Oceanography Lab , School of Mathematics and Statistics, UNSW Sydney
  • Dr Nina Ridder (PhD '14 )- Research Associate, ARC Centre of Excellence for Climate Extremes, UNSW Sydney
