The Bureau of Meteorology and CSIRO contribute significantly to the international effort of weather and climate monitoring, forecasting and research. In State of the Climate 2014, they discuss the long-term trends in Australia’s climate. As with earlier reports, the focus is primarily on climate observations and monitoring carried out in the Australian region, as well as on future climate scenarios.
