Biography

Dr. Whetton has led the Climate Impacts and Risk research stream at CSIRO Marine and Atmospheric Research since July 2005. A major component of Dr. Whetton's research has been analysing the regional output of enhanced greenhouse general cirulaton model (GCM) experiments, and using this information to construct regional scenarios of future climate change. She also works on regional climate change impact assessment. She was the main contributor to, and editor of, the Climate Impact Group's Australian climate change projections released in November 1992, November 1996, and May 2001. She is also contributing to new projections planned for release in October 2007.
