The Australian State of the Climate 2020 report
The Australian State of the Climate 2020 report reveals a picture of long-term climate trends and climate variability.
The biennial climate snapshot draws on the latest observations and climate research from the marine, atmospheric and terrestrial monitoring programs at CSIRO and Bureau of Meteorology.
We are all still dealing with the lasting impacts of Australia’s hottest and driest year on record in 2019. It was a year of intensifying drought over eastern Australia, high temperature records and the devastating bushfires of summer 2019–2020.
State of the Climate 2020 puts all these events into the longer-term context of climate change trends and key climate drivers.
