Monash Weather and Climate news
Over this year we (Mike Rezny, Martin Schweitzer, Kerry Nice and myself) developed a Test Version of the web-based interactive Monash Simple Climate Model:
The Monash simple climate model is based on the Globally Resolved Energy Balance (GREB) model, which is a climate model published by Dommenget and Floeter  in the international peer review science [...]

Dietmar Dommenget from MWAC has studied the role of control climate SST climatologies for the climate sensitivity of coupled general circulation models to a doubling of CO2 concentrations. The remarkable finding of this study is that the variation in the SST climatologies similar to those found in state of the art coupled general circulation models contribute significantly to the climate sensitivity uncertainty in these model ensembles.
