Australia's first Climate Index
Our team worked closely with the Actuaries Institute to develop a Climate Index to track changes in the frequency of extreme weather. This involved a detailed understanding of weather station data in Australia in consultation with Australia’s Bureau of Meteorology, Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation (CSIRO), leading insurance and natural hazard scientists and regulators.
The Climate Index includes measures of high and low temperatures, heavy precipitation, dry days, strong wind, and changes in sea level. The index is currently available nationally and across 12 regions of Australia and is updated quarterly as data for each meteorological season becomes available and is hosted here.
