Severe weather in a changing climate - 2nd edition
On 9 September IAG released the second edition of the Severe Weather in a Changing Climate report, in partnership with the US-based National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR).
The 2nd edition of the report builds on the first report released in November last year and notes that climate change will result in more frequent and intense extreme weather events across Australia, resulting in greater property, personal and economic damage, and hardship for Australian communities.
