Project Description

Australia possesses capability in the area of palaeoclimate modelling, but efforts to understand our past natural climate variations are hampered by the computational profligacy of such models. Further, Australia does not possess a capability in intermediate complexity models which would allow experiments that take account of tectonic time scales. This initiative aims to develop a framework to allow the integration of climate system models with grid computing approaches (such as Nimrod/G) and test this framework on a pilot study of the Australian palaeomonsoon system. In addition, we will use this initiative to develop international linkages to enhance our ability to address problems of importance to Australian natural climate variability.
