The critical decade: extreme weather

This report unpacks our current knowledge about different types of extreme weather events: extreme temperatures, rainfall, drought, bushfires, storm surges, cyclones and storms. For each weather event the report considers: 1. the definition of the extreme event; 2. their consequences for the things that matter to us; 3. observations of the event over the last several decades or longer; 4. the influence of climate change; 5. how the event is expected to change through the rest of this century.
