Deadline: Thursday 10 July 2014
The Environmental Change Institute (ECI) is leading a major research project “MaRIUS: Managing the Risks, Impacts and Uncertainties of droughts and water Scarcity” within the UK Droughts on Water Scarcity Programme.
Applications for this vacancy are to be made online.
Professor David Karoly, who is part of our Australia & New Zealand weather@home experiment, was the guest on this week’s Science Show on ABC Radio. He talks about our latest experiment, looking at the risk of heatwaves and drought in Australia & New Zealand.
Following preliminary assessments from the Met Office, Oxford University researchers undertook the first scientific experiment to analyse whether the risk of extreme rainfall has changed due to climate change after the winter deluge between December 2013 and February 2014.
The press conference will be streamed live, and you can watch it on the EGU website. We will be formally releasing the results tomorrow morning, to coincide with the press conference.
