DAY FOUR WRAP UP

jpeg-1Flamboyant Prof. David Karoly, ARC Centre of Excellence for Climate System Science/University of Melbourne, kicked off MPE today with an information-packed presentation on Modelling variations in extreme climate events and understanding their causes.

Prof. Karoly spoke on ‘The Angry Hot Summer 2012-13’ Australians recently experienced and also launched his new citizen project Weather@HomeANZ.

ANU Professor Brian Kennett took us through the imaging of earth’s sub-surface through seismic tomography and was followed by Macelwane medalist Prof. Marc Parlange, EFLUM, presenting his research on alpine hydrology in the Swiss Alps using large eddy simulation (LES) – What a LAB!

Dr Kate Evans, Oak Ridge National Laboratory, told us how high resolution models performed by ‘Titan’-ic computing has enabled her team to observe how large scale events in Asia cause small events in the U.S.
