Climate Science

Associate Professor Pauline Grierson

We aim to provide policy-makers, business leaders, the media, and the public with the latest accurate information about climate science and the ecological and social effects of climate change. We provide rigorously checked, credible and relevant information from peer-reviewed sources, contacts to UWA experts who can clearly explain the scientific literature, and strive to foster a better understanding of the consequences of climate change and correct some common misconceptions that can confuse the public.

Associate Professor Pauline Grierson

Assoc Professor Pauline Grierson of the School of Plant Biology at UWA has a research focus on ecosystem biogeochemistry, tree physiology and impacts of hydroclimatic variability on ecosystems.

She is also the Director of the West Australian Biogeochmeistry Centre and is particularly interested in understanding and quantifying rainfall variability across western Australia over recent millenia, with a strong emphasis on using oxygen and carbon isotopes to trace climatic signals in tree rings . She collaborates widely with climate scientists, hydrogeologists, environmental engineers, and ecosystem ecologists.
