ARC Centre of Excellence for Climate Extremes

The Climdex project is currently led, maintained and funded by the by the ARC Centre of Excellence for Climate Extremes (CLEX). CLEX is a consortium of five Australia universities funded by the Australian Research Council (ARC). It conducts world-class research into the processes within the climate system that cause climate extremes.

UNSW Climate Change Research Centre

Climdex was originally developed and maintained by researchers at the Climate Change Research Centre (CCRC) at the University of New South Wales (UNSW), who also contributed to the development of the datasets made available by Climdex. CCRC currently hosts key members of the Climdex project team.

Met Office Hadley Centre

The Met Office Hadley Centre is a key partner in the development of datasets made available by Climdex. The Centre is one of the UK's foremost climate change research centres. It carries out world leading research to provide climate science and services.

NOAA National Centers for Environmental Information

The National Oceanographic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) National Centers for Environmental Information (NCEI) Centre is a key provider of data to Climdex. NCEI is the US’s leading authority for environmental data, and manages one of the largest archives of atmospheric, coastal, geophysical, and oceanic research in the world.

Former partners

Climdex was originally funded by the Australian Research Council and the Australian Department of Climate Change and Energy Efficiency through Linkage project LP100200690 and in collaboration with the University of Melbourne and Environment Canada.
