Poster: Evaluating the SAM-precipitation relationship in ACCESS-S2 for southwest Western Australia
Southwest Western Australia (SWWA) is home to a world class grain’s industry that is significantly impacted by periods of drought. Previous research has shown a link between the Southern Annular Mode (SAM) and precipitation in SWWA. Hence, the predictability of the SAM and its relationship to SWWA rainfall can potentially improve forecasts of SWWA drought which would provide valuable information for farmers in SWWA. This poster evaluates the relationship between the SAM and precipitation in SWWA, and how well this is simulated in ACCESS-S2.
