Advancing our knowledge on (Australian) heatwaves

6 July 2018, 1.00 PM - 6 July 2018, 2.00 PM

Hepple Lecture Theatre, School of Geographical Sciences, University of Bristol

A BRIDGE talk by guest lecturer Sarah Perkins-Kirkpatrick, ARC Future Fellow, University of New South Wales, Australia.

Heatwaves are ambiguously defined as prolonged periods of excessive heat. Over recent years, there has been an explosion of research on how to measure heatwaves, their observed trends, future projections, driving physical mechanisms, and the attribution of human influence. This talk will provide a summary of these advances, with a particular focus on Australian heatwaves. Future directions in this space will also be outlined.

Please note this event is only open to University of Bristol staff and students.
