Climate extremes are the confluence of high impact weather and climate variability. The Centre will improve our understanding of the processes that trigger or enhance extremes and build this understanding into our modelling systems. The improved predictions of climate extremes will help Australia cope with extremes now and in the future.[/et_pb_text][/et_pb_column][/et_pb_row][et_pb_row make_equal=”on” module_class=” et_pb_row_fullwidth” _builder_version=”3.25″ background_color=”#e8e8e8″ width=”89%” width_tablet=”80%” width_last_edited=”on|desktop” max_width=”89%” max_width_tablet=”80%” max_width_last_edited=”on|desktop” custom_margin=”25px|0px|0px|0px” custom_padding=”25px|25px|25px|25px” border_radii=”on|3px|3px|3px|3px” make_fullwidth=”on”][et_pb_column type=”4_4″ _builder_version=”3.25″ custom_padding=”0px|0px|0px|0px” custom_padding__hover=”|||”][et_pb_text _builder_version=”3.27.4″ text_font=”|700|||||||” text_font_size=”22″ header_font_size=”22px” header_2_font_size=”22px” custom_margin=”0px|0px|0px|0px” custom_padding=”0px|0px|0px|0px”]
