RMIT Space-based Weather and Climate Extremes Monitoring

Welcome to the RMIT SPACE Research Centre’s Weather and Climate Extremes Monitoring website!

Our research focuses on the utilisation of space-based Earth observations and geospatial technology to study weather and climate extremes, such as droughts, floods. From our research, we aim to provide our research partners and National Meteorological & Hydrological Services in the World Meteorological Organization (WMO) Regions II (Asia) and V (South-West Pacific) access to:

  • WMO Space-based Weather and Climate Extremes Monitoring (SWCEM) precipitation estimate and derived products
  • A prototype regional Drought Monitoring Portal for Australia, Papua New Guinea (PNG), Indonesia, Vietnam, and Southeast Asia
  • A prototype Experimental or a reginal Tropical Cyclone Risk Assessment Portal
  • A prototype regional Floods Monitoring Portal
Our research is aligned to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goal 13, and contributes to new UN target: "Early warning systems must protect everyone within five years".
