The SEARCH project team is excited to announce that our project’s Environmental Historian, Assoc. Prof. Don Garden has just released his book Droughts, Floods and Cyclones; El Ninos that shaped our colonial past.
The book is a comprehensive study of El Nino events in colonial Australia, examining how colonists came to understand their climate and its extremes, and develop precautionary measures.
