The research will answer two questions 1. What controls the strength and location of the sea level pressure in winter over Australia? Because of the very strong correlation between the two, simulating the mean wintertime anticyclone correctly is a prerequisite for simulating the wintertime rainfall. 2. Are the summertime anticyclones associated with heatwaves and the most severe fire conditions, simulated well and for the correct physical reasons in climate models?
