Helping Australia better understand, respond to and prepare for extreme events and emergency situations, such as bushfires, floods, cyclones and drought.

Drought

Australia has a highly variable climate with a naturally occurring cycle of wet and dry periods. Droughts are an expected product of this variability, although their severity and frequency may change in the future.

Tropical cyclones

Tropical cyclones threaten northern Australia every year. CSIRO research seeks to understand causes and likely changes in tropical cyclone intensity and frequency.
