About Us

Researchers at the University of Melbourne worked with partners from around Australia and the world to reconstruct south-eastern Australia’s climate record for the past 200–500 years.

It was the largest Australian Research Council Linkage Project within the University of Melbourne’s Faculty of Science when it was awarded in 2009. Our team was proud to partner with the following organisations:

Australian Bureau of Meteorology Murray-Darling Basin Authority Department of Sustainability and Environment
Melbourne Water National Institute of Water and Atmospheric Research (NZ) Met Office (UK)
National Library of Australia State Library of NSW State Library of Victoria
National and State Libraries Australasia Powerhouse Museum Monash University

Although this project has now concluded, ongoing research into Australia’s climate history continues.
