Climate Drivers and Australian Climate

About this data viewer

COMET designs interactive data viewers to facilitate engagement and learning. The example below allows learners to compare the influence of various climate drivers on Australia’s climate at different times of the year. It is taken from the MetEd lesson Interpreting Climate Outlooks: An Australian Example, which teaches learners to interpret climate outlook maps for rainfall and temperature, and use those maps to inform climate-sensitive decisions.

Climate Drivers and Australian Climate

Use the data viewer to answer the following questions. For each question, select the climate driver and season referenced in the question, and then compare the differences in observed rainfall and minimum and maximum temperatures (TMin/TMax).
